    Event Description:
    Join a long-standing dialogue with civic, educational and business thought leaders.

    Speaker: Amy Anderson, Association of Washington Business

    The AWB recently published an article that shows a new report that highlights major staff turnover and other challenges in the child care industry. This in turn impacts the business community and our local economy. The Washington Child Care Collaborative Task Force shows a 43% workforce turnover rate, among other challenges. 

    Amy will walk us through this report and what this impact will continue to have on families and the economy as employers seek staff members.
