We are excited to announce that Heather Boushey, noted economist and an expert on how public policies can help address the challenges faced by working families, will deliver a plenary address at our annual conference on March 2 in Sacramento.
Boushey is author of the acclaimed Finding Time: The Economics of Work-Life Conflict and serves as Executive Director and Chief Economist at the Washington Center for Equitable Growth. She has twice been named by Politico as one of the top 50 “thinkers, doers and visionaries transforming American politics.”
Boushey‘s address at Policy Insights 2017 will discuss how emerging or expected federal policy proposals might affect working families’ financial and overall well-being. Boushey will provide examples of policy ideas, including those that state policymakers could pursue, for significantly helping families to make ends meet and climb the economic ladder.
