The Future of Family and Work

The Future of Family and Work: How Today's Demographic, Workforce, and Gender Changes Are Shaping America's Future The relationships between men and women, families and work, and parents and children, are changing in amazing and surprising ways that should cause us to rethink assumptions about what the future will look like. Indeed, many societal structures in America will have to change to keep pace. If fertility and immigration rates continue falling at current rates how will this impact public policy? Has our long-held desire for gender equality failed American families, especially women? Could your role at work and at home be shifting? Why are you feeling so stressed about meeting all your responsibilities and what should you do about it? How are the roles of men and women likely to be different ten years from now? What impact will changing technologies have on your children and family life? Join the New America Foundation for a provocative discussion of key changes in American society and what its future will look like.
