The Labor & Employment Law Section of the King County Bar Association hosts meetings throughout the year. Typically, the Section hosts two Section meetings - the Annual Business Meeting in the early summer and the Section's Annual Winter Event in the winter.
The next Section meeting, the Annual Winter Event, will be held on January 18, at Davis Wright Tremaine's Seattle office (1201 Third Avenue, Ste 2200). The Section is very excited to bring acclaimed author and speaker Josh Levs to present “The New All In Legal Frontier: Men as Equal Caregivers.”
Josh Levs is the author of the award-winning book All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses–And How We Can Fix It Together (HarperOne 2015). As Josh’s full bio explains: Levs spent 20 years reporting for NPR and CNN before stepping into a global spotlight by taking legal action against Time Warner (CNN’s parent company) for fair parental leave so he could care for his premature daughter and sick wife. The company ultimately embraced his call, revolutionizing its policy to make it better for moms and dads. He now works with corporations, organizations, universities and more to build policies that support men as equal caregivers, a crucial step toward ensuring equal career opportunities to women. The United Nations named Levs a Global Champion of Gender Equality. The Financial Times named him one of the top 10 male feminists. Josh’s talk will include a discussion of Washington’s upcoming paid family leave policy (to begin in 2019 for funding/2020 for use).
