Event Description:

The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce and United WE invite area employers, legislators and childcare professionals to join us for an engaging and informative panel discussion on one of the most pressing challenges facing families and businesses today - the childcare crisis. As families grapple with the complexities of finding quality, affordable childcare, many women are forced to leave the workforce. It's essential to come together, share insights, and explore ways to break down barriers to access.
Paula Neth, president and CEO of The Family Conservancy will present a childcare tax credit calculator to help businesses understand how much they can save by utilizing the childcare tax credit available in Kansas.
