RSVP to Fathers and Family Leave: Making It Work
The presence of a father at home in the early days of a child's life can be essential to the bonding between father and baby, and to relieving the stress on mothers at home and at work. Companies that offer paternity leave see less employee turnover. Yet paternity leave benefits are not widely available and, even when available, often unused.

In light of the recent passage of paid family leave legislation in New York State, leaders in this field discuss the cultural and business factors working against fathers actually taking paternity leave, and how we can improve the availability and uptake of family leave for fathers.

When: Tuesday, April 26, 8:00am-10:00am.
Where: Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building of The Museum of Modern Art, at 4 West 54 St.
