Watch: Businesswoman Makini Howell on strengthening women’s economic security

Makini Howell, a local business owner and supporter of the Washington Work and Family Coalition, joined us for our recent forum on women’s economic security with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. Makini, who is on the board of the Main Street Alliance, shared how strong working family policies – like paid sick days and family leave – help her employees and business prosper.

The Washington Work and Family Coalition includes representatives of seniors, women, labor, health professionals, children’s advocates, faith communities, low income workers, employers, non-profits and other organizations. We’re working together to make it easier for parents to raise healthy children and care for aging parents; for workers to care for themselves or their partners in the event of a serious illness; and for businesses to offer modern workplace standards that improve productivity and worker health.
