About Investing in the Caring Economy:
The panel will discuss the challenges and impacts of being a carer, a care worker and being cared for, and why valuing care is key to a healthy society and women’s economic well-being. Learn more about what we mean by the caring economy and why now is the time for BWV and its allies to call for a greater Caring Economy in Bristol.
There will be plenty of time for questions from the audience.
