Powering Children's Potential: The Case for Helping Parents and Families

Parents are the architects of their children’s brains, especially during the earliest years. Research shows that the first five years of a child’s life builds the foundation for lifelong learning and achievement. Parents need to be able to provide their children with security, enrichment and time during these incredibly formative years – but, too often, workplace culture runs counter to a positive work/life balance. Employers are paying the price, too, with good workers leaving in droves due to work-family conflict. With the neuroscience of early childhood as a guide, we can apply what we know about foundational brain development to inform a new way of doing business.

PNC invites you to join us for an insightful roundtable where you'll hear about the needs of real workers from real families, why what's good for employees can also be good for business, and what family-friendly policies actually look like in practice.
