#var:page_name# cover

Do you hire, or need to hire, someone to help with caregiving or housework? Your home is someone’s workplace… which makes YOU someone’s boss.

How can you ensure that you’re complying with the new Illinois Domestic Workers’ Bill of Rights? How can you find quality care, create a clear working agreement, and build a strong working relationship that lasts?

In this free 90-minute workshop, you’ll meet people in similar situations, gather practical tips, & hone your skills in that great human art of communication. You will also place your family’s story in the bigger picture, so you can advocate for fair pay, & the caring economy we all deserve!

(Children welcome - please let us know ahead of time if you will bring them so we can have activities planned for them! And please note that while this workshop is especially geared to parents, if you employ a housecleaner or caregiver for an adult, this info will be useful for you too!)

About the facilitator: Kate Duva is a certified Caring Economy advocate, & organizer with Hand in Hand, a partner of National Domestic Workers Alliance. Kate brings fun, creativity, & collaboration to workshops, drawing on years of experience as a mama, teacher, caregiver & play therapist.


We are looking for more hosts! Want to plan a FREE workshop or brown bag lunch conversation at your business or organization, or gather a few friends for a coffee talk in your home? Let's partner! Contact Kate: (773) 306-3627 or kate@prosocialpower.org.
