Create a culture of support for employees with caregiver responsibilities. In a time of navigating remote work and parents crisis schooling and caregiving around the clock, leadership can excel with the Parent Artist Advocacy League's compassion training, what they call "the combination of empathy and education that leads to collaborative solutions." They engage with leadership on the realities of their employees with caregiver responsibilities. The session identifies a unique value system, strategy, and actionable steps for supporting these employees to improve work relationship, communication, and support through a process that is sustainable and inclusive.
