1 Million for Work Flexibility (1MFWF), the first national initiative creating a collective voice in support of flexible work, today announced it will celebrate its 4th anniversary by hosting National Flex Day on October 17, 2017.

1MFWF’s celebration includes a contest inviting people to share what work flexibility means to them on 1MFWF’s blog and on Twitter, as well as a webinar on Oct 17th @ 2 P.M. ET detailing the current “State of National Flex.” Panelists will include Sara Sutton Fell, Founder of 1MFWF and FlexJobs, Brigid Schulte, director of the Better Life Lab and The Good Life initiative at New America, and Ian Reynolds, Director of WorkLife and Community Programs in the Office of Work, Life and Engagement at Johns Hopkins. Panelists will address the prevalence and types of flexible work arrangements available, state and federal policies around work flexibility, and the short and long-term outlook of its growth.
