Washington, DC – On June 23, 2014, the White House Council on Women and Girls, the Department of Labor, and the Center for American Progress will host a Summit on Working Families to focus on creating a 21st century workplace that works for all Americans.  The President, Vice President, First Lady, and Dr. Biden will participate in the summit.

Workplaces that make full use of the talented pool of American workers are essential – to a thriving and healthy economy, to enable businesses to stay competitive in today’s global economy, and to help all workers ensure the economic stability of their families. Too many working Americans – both women and men – are living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet and respond to the competing demands of work and family. The summit will convene businesses, economists, labor leaders, policymakers, advocates, and ordinary citizens to discuss policy solutions that can make a real difference in the lives of working families and ensure America’s global competitiveness in the coming decades.

The panel discussions and remarks by the President, Vice President, First Lady, Dr. Biden and other officials will be open to pre-credentialed media. Media interested in covering the summit can apply for credentials by visiting HERE. The deadline to apply is Friday, June 13.
