Bastrop, TX (May 11, 2023) — Last week, May 3-5, 2023, staff from the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with Bastrop County Cares, joined hundreds of Fortune 500 company leaders in Fort Worth, Texas for The Best Place for Working Parents® 2023 National Summit to discuss how business leaders are setting a new precedent for what it means to be family-friendly through policies that are benefiting working parents and companies. The second annual Summit is hosted by The Best Place for Working Parents® initiative, a leading network of designated companies across the U.S. dedicated to supporting working parents and families through evidence-based policies and practices.  

Company leaders from Indeed, AT&T, PepsiCo, Tyson, Accenture, Antonelli’s Cheese Shop, Waste Management, and several other business leaders from across the country spoke on topics such as child care, family-friendly policies, how data can help inform business policies, and more.

“At this year’s Summit, we discussed how we continue to build upon the movement to create policies and procedures to support more family-friendly and business-friendly workplaces and define how family-friendly will look in the future,” said Sadie Funk, national director of The Best Place for Working Parents. “This year will be vital in making the critical connection between workforce innovation and business ROI for leaders to continue their successful progress.”

“Bringing family-friendly policies to our members will make a huge difference in helping women re-enter and stay in the workforce,” said Becki Womble, President and CEO of the Bastrop Chamber of Commerce.  “We’re excited to be certified as a “Best Place for Working Parents” and look forward to bringing the program to our membership at our June 7 Membership Luncheon.  This is just one of the many ways the Chamber continues to be at the Heart of Business.”
