Child Care is Part of an Inclusion Strategy | Priya Amin | TEDxPittsburgh

Priya Amin has had many titles. Brand manager. Co-founder. Mom. It’s the latter that inspired her to understand more about the cost of ignoring childcare, the cost to organizations and the cost to working parents. In her talk, she shares ideas on why she believes childcare is a critical part of every organization’s roadmap to inclusion and how can benefit workers and employers alike.

Priya, who holds an MBA from the University of Arizona, and worked as a product and brand manager at corporations such as IBM and Nestle, left her high powered career to be home with her two boys, and never looked back. After successfully launching and running a marketing consulting firm called ROKI, she began looking for ways to continue fostering creativity and entrepreneurship among women. She launched Flexable, LLC in 2016 with her partner Jessica Strong, and was accepted to the 16th cohort of the AlphaLab Accelerator program in 2016.

Flexable has gained regional and national attention for providing innovative childcare solutions, most notably on-site childcare at offices and events. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
