On January 15th, The Atlantic Presents The Shriver Report LIVE gathered a group of inspiring leaders to discuss the findings and implications of the latest Shriver Report, an ongoing multi-platform project founded by Maria Shriver, in partnership with the Center for American Progress. The marquee event took on this fundamental question: Why are millions of working women, who are now the core of the American economy and the core of the American family, more economically vulnerable than ever before, and what can we as a nation do about it? Across a full day of panel discussions, case studies, and keynote interviews, the forum probed the government policies, private sector practices, social structures, and personal decisions that prevent American women from achieving long-term financial security and keep them teetering on the brink.
