Many Americans struggle to balance work and caregiving responsibilities. As the United States population ages — with the U.S. Census Bureau projecting that by 2035 those 65 and older will outnumber the youth for the first time in history – the number of men and women who are providing care for someone age 65 and older will continue to increase. In addition, one in seven people live with an adult with a disability.   This panel will explore the impact that paid leave has on improving adult health outcomes.

This webinar is the third in a series of three webinars produced in partnership with Policies for Action—a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, administered by the Urban Institute—on the impacts of work supports on health outcomes.  

Moderator Dr. Heidi Hartmann, President and CEO, Institute for Women’s Policy Research
Panelists Dr. Kanika Arora, Assistant Professor, Department of Health Management & Policy, University of Iowa
Indivar Dutta-Gupta, Co-Executive Director, Center on Poverty and Inequality & the Economic Security and Opportunity Initiative, Georgetown Law
Lynn Friss Feinberg, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor, AARP Public Policy Institute
Josephine F. Kalipeni, Director of Policy and Federal Affairs, Caring Across Generations


 MSU Women of History Event

An announcement from MSU College of Education, Health & Human Development:

Historian Dr. Robert Rydell Interviews Dr. Ellen Kriegbaum, who was one of 5 women who sued the MT Board of Regents and the MT University System for equal pay and promotion for women.

Tuesday, May 21, 5:30-7pm

MSU SUB Ballroom B

Followed by a “Where Are We Now?” discussion led by Professor of History & Philosophy, Dr. Kristen Intemann

Dr. Rydell will interview Dr. Ellen Kreigbaum, professor of Biomechanics, the first Director of the MSU Women’s Athletics and one of 125 women honored by MSU and President Cruzado during MSU’s 125th Anniversary celebration.

In 1976, Dr. Kreigbaum and four other plaintiffs, won a lawsuit against MT State and the Board of Regents for discriminating “against women by underutilizing women in certain departments, and by applying inequitable standards regarding salary, promotion, tenure and appointment of women to prominent university committees.”

Dr. Intemann will discuss a range of issues still confronting women in academia such as inclusivity/climate, pay, harassment, retribution, implicit discrimination, microaggressions, and work/life challenges

This event is FREE and is open to the public.

Refreshments will be served.
