Event Description
Laws and policies fundamentally shape workers’ ability to balance work and family responsibilities.  New data tools from the WORLD Policy Analysis Center enable in-depth and comparative analysis of the laws and policies that matter to caregiving responsibilities across the lifecourse for all 193 UN member states.  In this workshop, WORLD’s Principal Research Analyst and co-author of Equality within Our Lifetimes, Amy Raub, will share how to access, download, and use these freely available data tools, spanning topics from caregiving discrimination at work to paid leave for care responsibilities from infancy through old age. She will also provide a background on the rigorous double coding methodology used to construct the detailed indicators that provide insights on adequacy of legal provisions and whether policies are designed to reach and meet the needs of all workers and families. Data use cases will be included to highlight how these data have been and can be used to promote evidence-based policymaking and advocacy, make structural inequalities and their impact transparent, and expand evidence of the impact of strengthening laws and policies on gender equality, health, economies, and other outcomes.
