    • Abstract:
      The goals of the Corporate Summit for Children were to: (1) increase understanding about the tremendous impact of maternal and child health-related costs on the private sector; (2) clarify the role that business, health professionals, educators, and policymakers can play together in the workplace, in the community, and in the public policy arena to improve the health and well-being of mothers, children, and families; (3) provide opportunities for business leaders to forge new partnerships with policymakers and health and education professionals interested in developing collaborative solutions to maternal and child health related problems; and (4) promote the development of blueprints for action that can be initiated at the federal, state, and local levels on behalf of families. This report begins with an overview of the health status of the nation's children, pregnant women, and families, and its impact on businesses' bottom line. A discussion of the importance of collaboration between business, health and education professionals, and policymakers in addressing the needs of children and families follows. A summary of a panel discussion between business, health, education, and public policy representatives who are on the "front lines" of work and family issues is then presented. The report concludes with a blueprint for action derived from the summit's afternoon working session and a call to action based on the remarks of author and economist Sylvia Ann Hewlett. The report includes profiles of companies making a difference for families, the summit agenda, the host organizations, and 34 references and endnotes. (TJQ)
