ABC wins a Moving into the Future
Award from the Conference Board's Work-Life Leadership Council
The ABC won a Moving into the Future award from
the Conference Board's Work-Life Leadership Council for Leadership
in connecting to communities as a result of it's innovative partnership
with the National Association for Child Care Resource and Referral
Agencies (NACCRRA) to improve the quality of child and school-age
care in communities throughout the United States. The ABC developed
web-based train-the-trainer sessions for NACCRRA trainers on 18
of its most successful training models. Training sessions resulted
in 925 trainings scheduled to be implemented in 2003 in 39 communities.
The train-the-trainer sessions were recorded and archived on NACCRRA's
website in an effort to continue the ability to support community
efforts to improve the quality of care for working families.
Mike Shum of IBM accepted the award on behalf
of the American Business Collaboration for Quality Dependent Care
(ABC) at the Conference Board's 2003 Work-Life Conference entitled
Work-Life at a Crossroads: Providing Leadership on Tough Issues
which was held on June 17 & 18, 2003 in New York City. The Moving
into the Future Award honors innovative programs, creative solutions,
and work-life leaders that address the issues and challenges of
today's workforce and workplace.
The ABC would like to congratulate our fellow
honorees: Kathy Lingle of KPMG; Nancy Lesch of Motorola; Jim Sipes
of Abbott and Kendra Kett of Abbott's Center for Child Development;
and Connie Jacot of Intel.
