Stanford Business Insights: An Economist’s Take on Why Parental Leave Matters

Stanford Professor Emerita Myra Strober talks about how vital paid maternity and paternity leave is for women, men and gender equality in the country as a whole. The US is the only one of 37 developed nations that doesn’t offer paid maternity leave and only 12% of private sector workers have access to paid family leave. Recruiting and developing talent is a big investment and offering them paid family leave keeps them with the company. Also, good childcare strengthens the family by allowing families to have two earners so that the family is economically self-sufficient.

Also, the protocol should require the interviewer to score each answer immediately, compare the responses horizontally and aggregate the answers before evaluators meet to discuss the applicants.

More attention needs to be paid to 6 out of 10 gender equality indicators: leadership and managerial positions, unpaid care work, single mothers, teenage pregnancy, political representation, and violence against women.
