The Wisconsin Women’s Council (appointed by the Governor and the State Legislature) in partnership with the Wisconsin Family and Caregiver Support Alliance is looking for employers of all sizes to participate in a first annual survey on caregiving.

We seek to better understand the challenges employers experience as they address the needs of employees with caregiving responsibilities. The intent of this survey is to improve information and other resources available to Wisconsin employers as they support all caregivers on the job, including women. Individual survey responses will remain confidential. The overall survey results and report will be shared with participating employers.

For purposes of this survey, caregiving is defined as support provided to a family member (beyond typical care for a minor child) who may be an older adult or person with a disability. The survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete. Deadline to participate: May 31
