Family-Friendly Benefits and Women’s Health

This educational program qualifies for up to 3.5 hours of CEBS Compliance credit. Visit for more information and to self-report credits.

When it comes to attracting and retaining top-quality talent, a family-friendly environment is essential.  And when women are struggling with health issues that affect their morale and productivity, they can’t be told “it’s all in your head.”

Hear employers talk about which family-friendly solutions they’ve implemented and why – and what impact they’ve had.

Then learn why endometriosis, migraine and post-partum depression are often overlooked as serious health issues despite their toll on women’s health. The good news?  There are new treatments that work!

Finally, get expert guidance on the complex array of legal and compliance issues surrounding family issues like parental and caregiver leave, adoption, egg freezing and more.

The morning kicks off with a keynote on “The New Millennial Family” that you won’t want to miss!
