Educational Webinar: Child Care - Sharing Solutions for a Better Economic Impact
Please join us on Thursday, June 1st from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. for a Zoom Webinar.
The cost of child care has been an ever-increasing detriment to families who struggle to balance the reality of those expenses with the ability to make choices regarding their income and employment that leads to a strong quality of life. At the same time, companies are struggling to find and keep workers.
Michigan is taking action! Learn about multiple initiatives designed to help families and how business and economic development participation can be a strong part of implementing the solutions that make needed connections for the betterment of companies, their employees, and communities as a whole.
