Parental Leave Policies Can’t Repair a Broken System Alone

Companies are unfairly expected to do the work of society. Despite years of advocacy, a vast majority of U.S. employees still lack access to paid parental leave, with low-wage workers, particularly women and people of color, being the most vulnerable. Additionally, very few managers and expecting/new parents receive any type of leave resources or navigation support, let alone socio-emotional transition support.
