The Corporate Leadership Circle

Why Support Families and Work Institute?

Since 1993 the Corporate Leadership Circle (CLC) of the Families and Work Institute (FWI) has allowed leaders in the work-life field access to our latest research and to each other. The "war for talent" challenges all human resource and work-life executives today. Work-life issues have moved toward the center of business strategy, affecting the design of work structures and processes, as well as the bottom line.

Our ahead-of-the-curve research speaks to these crucial issues:

  • Through our Corporate Leadership Circle briefings, conference calls and list serv, you will find guidance and engage in solution-based discussions with peers and experts.
  • Join an impressive and select group of close to 50 companies that believe there is real value in supporting FWI programs.
  • Receive preferential consideration for "Ask the Children" corporate events and FWI speakers, in huge demand nationally, through our FWI Speaks program.
  • Receive widespread recognition from employees, industry peers and the media for your commitment to work-life issues.

Annual Corporate Leadership Circle member contributions allow FWI to achieve our mission—to provide data to inform decision making on vital issues of the changing workforce, family and community.

  • We identify emerging trends that will affect work, family and community life before they become part of the national dialogue.
  • We move beyond problems to identify and help create solutions that consider workplace productivity, talent recruitment, development and retention, and family, personal and community needs.
  • Through a variety of forums and by working with the media, we make sure that our findings reach business leaders, legislative decision-makers and a broad national audience.
  • We focus on the well-being of this country's children, on the role of fathers and on community concerns such as violence, the future of work, diversity, family communication, technology and the pressures of contemporary life.
CLC Membership allows your company to:
  • Receive current FWI research publications free of charge and all other FWI publications at a 20 percent discount. Corporate bulk order discounts are also available.
  • Attend the annual CLC Briefing each January. This meeting is highly valued because of the keynote speakers we engage, the dynamic Round Robin we conduct among CLC members, the cutting-edge FWI research findings and future directions we present and the opportunity it gives CLC members to influence the FWI research agenda.
  • Participate in conference calls with expert speakers twice a year on "hot" topics of interest to work-life, diversity and human resource professionals.
  • Receive regular updates and memos from FWI (PR, media, speaking, and conference opportunities). Also receive our "Friends of FWI" newsletter!
  • Receive preferential consideration for "Ask the Children" corporate events and FWI Speaks engagements (we waive a speaker's fee for those companies that are "Corporate Benefactors").
  • Be listed on the FWI Web site, which receives approximately 2000 hits per week, and on all FWI publications and materials. FWI receives a great deal of media attention. By association, our CLC member companies do, too!
