A Child-Centered Approach to Paid Parental Leave

A Conversation

Watch a recording of the webinar from May 2021, in partnership with the Institute for Family Studies (IFS) and the Center for Public Justice (CPJ), for a conversation on a new paper written by IFS research fellow and American Enterprise Institute Adjunct Fellow Lyman Stone and CPJ Resident Fellow and Director of the Families Valued Project Rachel Anderson, who offer their thoughts on how family leave policies can best be structured, and what it means for millions of families who stand to benefit from them.

The event included Isabel V. Sawhill, Senior Fellow in Economic Studies at the Brookings Institution, working in the Center on Children and Families and on the Future of the Middle Class Initiative, as a respondent; and it was moderated by W. Bradford Wilcox, IFS senior fellow and professor of sociology at the University of Virginia.
