Work and Family Month Program Kit
A whopping 44% of working family caregivers don't tell their supervisors about their caregiving responsibilities.
What's your plan for Work and Family Month this October?
Got 15 minutes? You've got a virtual event!
Three simple steps to hosting a free event for your team, ERGs or colleagues
during National Work and Family Month in October.
1. Sign up to host a Prepare to Care on-demand workshop
Unlike parents-to-be, many family caregivers don't see it coming and don't know how to prepare for the role. This free on-demand webinar helps employees anticipate their caregiving journey and find the resources they need. Sign up here to host it and choose a date in October.
2. Post your invitation
Customize this message and post it to your Slack, MS Teams, and ERG groups to invite your colleagues:
"Join us on October (xx) at (xx) EST to celebrate Work and Family Month! We're hosting a virtual workshop to help us prepare to take on a caregiving role for a parent, partner or other adult loved one. Whether it's next week or next year, most of us will have to care for an aging loved one or an ill partner during our career here. This workshop will provide tips, resources and ideas for communities of support. Sign up here <add link>"
3. Invite a special guest to join for Q&A (optional)
Invite an HR team member to join for Q&A about the benefits and flexible work policies that can support employees who have caregiving responsibilities. Or invite a speaker from AARP to join you for Q&A by emailing
4. After the event, share resources with all who registered
Immediately after the event, share this message with everyone who registered: "Happy Work and Family Month! We hope you were able to join us for our Prepare to Care workshop. Be sure to explore the full set of free resources, videos and family workbooks here. Then share them with your team-- you never know who's about to become a caregiver."
