Working Families conference will examine the value of engaging and developing parents at work

The Working Families spring conference, Working Parents: Engaging and Developing Mothers and Fathers will examine parents in the workplace; their engagement, their productivity, their relationship with their
managers and colleagues and their career progression.

Delegates will be the first to receive an exclusive briefing paper, sponsored by Deloitte, which will be launched at the event. The briefing will examine the findings to date on a new quantitative research project
on fathers and employment.

Leading HR practitioners will speak on the case for engaging with fathers and why working mothers make good business. The followingspeakers will be taking part:

* Sally Boyle, Head of HCM EMEA, Managing Director, Goldman Sachs
* Caroline Waters OBE, Director: People & Policy, BT
* Valerie Stevenson, HR Director, Deloitte
* Daniela Petrassi, VP Learning & Development, J. P. Morgan
* Jeanette Forder, Diversity Specialist, Defra
* Sarah Jackson OBE, Chief Executive, Working Families
* Liz Morris, Director, Mayfield Associates
* Rob Williams, Chief Executive, Fatherhood Institute

Sarah Jackson, Chief Executive of Working Families commented:

“Engaging and developing mothers and fathers goes beyond the maternity and paternity package an employer offers. Organisations need to develop strategies for ensuring that the talent of working parents is fully
harnessed in a win-win situation for both employee and employer.”

Working Parents: Engaging and Developing Mothers and Fathers is hosted by Deloitte in London EC4 and takes place on Thursday 4th March 2010 from 9.30am – 4.15pm.
