Why does child care matter to business?
San Francisco is an economic and technological powerhouse. Without proper child care, our city will suffer. Employers need workers and workers need child care. Without it, workers can’t be productive—costing businesses billions of dollars.
In a collaborative effort with The Berkeley Group, we published a white paper outlining the many economic challenges presented by lack of accessible care. Read the highlights of the report here.

What kinds of policies should businesses support?
We need big and small businesses alike to support public investment in our child care infrastructure while also advocating for universal public child care.
Join in the fight for child care! Our advocacy coalition, including our Women’s Leadership Business Council, works with civic leaders to ensure that early education is a priority at the local, state and national level.
