    How the US fails working parents -- and what they need to thrive | Reshma Saujani

    The pandemic brought into sharp focus the crisis in caregiving in the United States, which woefully under provides support for parents.

    The most powerful untapped resource in health care | Edith Elliott and Shahed Alam

    Whether we're rushing a child to the emergency room after a fall or making chicken soup for a feverish spouse, love inspires us to act when a family member gets sick. Global health activists Edith Elliott and Shahed Alam believe we can harness this power to create better health outcomes for everyone. Learn how their organization Noora Health works with doctors and nurses in India and Bangladesh to train the family members of hospital patients with essential skills to support their sick loved ones -- and how they plan to expand their reach to support 70 million caregivers who care for more than one billion people over the next six years.

    An Olympic champion's mindset for overcoming fear | Allyson Felix

    An Olympic champion's mindset for overcoming fear | Allyson Felix

    Getting pregnant as a track and field athlete is often called the "kiss of death" -- a sign your athletic career will soon end. Olympic champion, entrepreneur and proud mother Allyson Felix thinks it shouldn't be that way. She tells the story of starting a family while fighting to change her former sponsor's maternity policy -- and paving the way for others to get greater protection and more support. Her message is a testament to the power of believing in and advocating for yourself. "You don't have to be an Olympian to create change for yourself and others," she says. "Each of us can bet on ourselves."
