VEST Talks: The Child Care Cliff

A podcast episode for women about the child care cliff
VEST Her Podcast: VEST Talks on the Child Care Cliff

What if your career as a working parent came crashing down because of a lack of accessible childcare? Could you imagine being forced to choose between your profession and your child's wellbeing?

We're peeling back the layers on a pressing issue - the Childcare Cliff - and how its domino effect threatens the progress women have made in the workforce. The expiration of $24 billion in funding puts more than 70,000 child care centers at risk, and with it, the livelihoods of millions of families.

Our discussion doesn't end there. We're throwing light on solutions and actions we can take, as individuals, communities, and policymakers. This issue isn't just a challenge—it's an opportunity for collective action. So, let's stay informed, share these insights with our communities, and actively participate in advocating for a sustainable solution to the "Childcare Cliff."
