Lowering the Price of Motherhood: improving childcare, employer flexibility and part-time work

Thursday 15 March 2012 Tax and Welfare

Rising female employment has been central to Britain’s economy and the living standards of families over the last two decades. But once women have children, they often find themselves taking lower skilled, lower paid jobs because of the high costs of childcare, inflexible jobs and the lack of high quality part time work. In the run up to the Budget, and with a Government looking to woo back women, please join the Resolution Foundation and Women Like Us for an event to discuss how we can lower the price of motherhood.

The event will draw on research exploring how to make the most of the skills and experience of Britain’s working women, and what stimulates employers to create better quality part-time work.
