ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

information from City of Seattle

Councilmembers Sally Bagshaw, Lorena González and Lisa Herbold joined with the University of Washington to co-host a Paid Parental Leave Symposium at UW yesterday, where elected officials, business leaders, worker advocates, and researchers convened to discuss the scope and tools available to consider paid family leave policies for Seattle workers. Over 60 people participated in the symposium and heard research findings, program comparisons, and experiences of existing programs from other cities and states.

“I wanted this symposium to be a meeting of the minds, where employers, advocates and scholars could have a voice to express both the challenges, opportunities and evidence as Seattle pursues a paid family leave policy for our private sector workers,” said Councilmember Sally Bagshaw (District 7, Pioneer Square to Magnolia). “There’s a lot to learn, but I know we can create a Seattle program that works for everyone.”

Speakers yesterday included:
· Ellen Love, San Francisco Office of Labor Standards Enforcement
· Jared Make, a Better Balance
· Dan Spaulding, Zillow Group
