Statement of Maud Daudon, president & CEO of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, on paid family leave

“Paid family leave helps people balance their jobs and the need to care for their families at important times in their lives. This is one of the best practices in the Seattle Metro Chamber’s five-year effort on increasing gender equity in the workplace, called 100% Talent. We look forward to working closely with Mayor Ed Murray and the Seattle City Council to discuss how we can achieve this best practice in our city in a way that works for families and allows our business sector to thrive.”
