Focus Group on Paid Parental Leave Research

5:30 PM until 6:30 PM


Description: Help an LSSU student with a senior research project on paid parental leave in the United States by attending one of two focus groups on Feb. 3 and Feb. 10. Since the U.S. does not have a federal paid parental leave policy, the student is trying to determine what parents need in terms of time off and wage replacement, and how they would recommend a new paid federal parental leave policy would be funded. Any faculty, staff or students who are parents or soon-to-be parents are invited to participate in one of these focus groups. Get a chance at a gift card and two baskets full of goodies! Snacks and drinks will also be provided.
