Center for Work-Life Policy "has a long history of focusing on challenges and issues pertaining to the workplace. Originally the National Parenting Association, a non-profit research and advocacy organization founded in 1993, our aim was to encourage society to recognize the needs of working parents and their children. From conducting research to testifying before State legislatures to meetings at the White House, the NPA investigated the needs of parents and advocated for ways to help parents help their kids.

"In 2004, we changed our name to the Center for Work-Life Policy (CWLP). With the same emphasis on developing approaches and workplace policies that address work-life challenge, CWLP has widened its scope through the Hidden Brain Drain Task Force--a private sector task force focused on helping corporations leverage their talent across the divides of gender, generation and culture. The Task Force is comprised of more than 50 global corporations and organizations representing 4 million employees in 152 countries." [1]
