Lunch and Breakout: SOLD OUT
Join the West Michigan Chamber Coalition and Talent 2025 for an event that will focus on a key aspect impacting talent: quality childcare.
Studies show children who have better quality care at the early stages of life are more likely to perform better in school and be more successful in life. Investment in quality childcare is significantly lacking in the United States, yet is one of the most important investments our country can make to increase employment in skilled areas and increase economic productivity.
Join policymakers, business and community leaders to address this issue.
