Are You Ready? What Are Others Doing?

EANE has developed a series of discussion sessions to explore methods, tools and decision points related CT Paid Family Leave. The series includes 4 individual sessions which will be led by our staff. This series of roundtables allows companies to collaborate and share their challenges and concerns on key topics related to the upcoming Connecticut Paid Family Leave law.

Because these are designed as meetings intended to allow participants to learn from each other, we’re capping registrations at 18 participants.

Registration is transferable within the organization of the registered participant. This means that your organization may send different attendees to each of the four sessions, or you can use the same seat to send the same participant to all four meetings in the series.
