The United States is among the few wealthy nations that does not provide meaningful baseline support for caregivers – those caring for children and for elderly or disabled loved ones.

VisionForward’s first National Caregiving Summit will coincide with Women’s History Month, recognizing that the burden of caregiving disproportionately falls on women, who are often forced to sacrifice their own goals and financial security as a result.

The summit will feature national experts and thought leaders in an interactive panel discussion, a keynote address by Sen. Gillibrand and opportunities for audience participation.

Join us virtually on March 4 as we take a deeper look at this unique moment in history, what it demands and what steps we can take now to eliminate the caregiving penalty in the United States.
