On Thursday, October 10th, Ivanka Trump, Advisor to the President, joined HHS Secretary, Alex Azar, in a senior leadership roundtable on supporting working families in Kansas City. The panel was sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Governor Michael Parson and Senator Roy Blunt, both of Missouri, also participated in the listening tour to gather information from parents, child care providers, employers and state officials. The goal of the panel was to “gather information on innovative solutions to improve working families’ access to affordable, high-quality child care, as well as investigating how access to child care affects America’s workforce, present and future.”

Carolyn Watley, CBIZ Employee Benefits Vice President of Community Engagement, was invited to join the panel of Kansas City leaders.  Carolyn spoke about how employers can support working parents and offer benefit programs that help attract and retain talent in the workforce. Additionally, Carolyn highlighted our CBIZ offerings and work with our employee benefit clients in supporting working families. Carolyn was also representing the Greater KC Chamber as Vice Chair and emphasized the need to support our caregivers so that parents can be productive members of our workforce. Ensuring this level of support would help fill the many open positions that supports our economy and fuels regional growth.
