Small business owners, business leaders, policy experts, workers and labor leaders will join senior administration officials to share their ideas and strategies for making the workplace more flexible for American workers and families. The First Lady will deliver remarks at the opening session.
The forum will have five breakout sessions focused on best practices and why this is a priority for the American workplace and workforce. The opening and closing sessions, as well as all five breakout sessions, will be streamed live on www.WhiteHouse.gov/live. In addition, much of the event will be streamed to Facebook and Ustream, and the White House will include comments taken through these social networks in the feedback collected through the forum.
