We were trailblazers when we launched Work & Family Life in 1987. Our founders, Dr. Susan Ginsberg and researcher/author Ellen Galinsky are widely known and respected in the early childhood education and work-life fields.
Each monthly newsletter is based on the latest research on parenting, elder care, healthy living and the workplace. You’ll learn about issues you weren’t aware of—things you didn’t know you needed to know.
Over the years our readers have included employees of major corporations, companies of all sizes, nonprofits and government agencies.
We are now offering the newsletter directly to single subscribers. How to subscribe
