“Day 1 of the Working Parent Project has kicked off, and we are already learning so much — especially this brilliant idea from Dr. Janice Johnson Dias! Who else is ready to turn their kids and partners into home admins?”


Our Riveter working parents speak to one another about their personal experiences in this trying time. From single parenting to mothering a child with special healthcare needs and fathering while serving as an essential worker, COVID-19 has affected us all in different ways and it is critical we understand all sides to then create solutions.
