A discussion on the merits and consequences of parental leave, how companies can shape their policies to emphasize the merits, and what (if anything) the government could do to improve policy.


The Czech Republic has one of the most progressive parental leave policies in the world. Until today, it has mostly been maternal leave and not paternal leave. Experts point to the policy as a major reason for the gender pay gap and the lack of women at the top of organizations. What is the reality behind the headlines, and how can companies establish parental leave policies that meet myriad and sometimes conflicting objectives?


With Dinah Spritzer of Media Confident, Jakub Kabát of CMS and Jana Vychroňová of Vodafone.
