Toolkit for Crafting Inclusive Employer Practices and Policies

WEDNESDAY 9:45 AM – 11:00 AM | Job Quality – Parisian Room

Over the past two years, The Women’s Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation has researched how the cliff effect, self-sufficiency, and approximately 40 employer policies impact recruiting and retention of all workers. Also, Partners for a Competitive Workforce and the Women’s Fund have been conducting research on the prevalence of Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) and its connection to job training and employment. This led to the creation of a toolkit employers can use as they rethink and redesign their policies for their workforce. Learn about the toolkit and how one hospital has applied it to their retention efforts and what employers can do to create an environment that allows women experiencing IPV to continue and advance in the workplace.
