On June 11, 2015 from 2:00-3:00pm ET, Dr. Ybarra will be featured in the The Implications of Public Programs as Maternity-Leave among Single, Poor Mothers Webinar. In this free webinar, Dr. Ybarra will discuss her research on the use of cash welfare as a means-tested maternity leave program since the welfare reforms of the 1990’s, and on paid leave programs and policies (temporary disability insurance, paid family leave) for new mothers. She will share findings about the relationships between these programs and economic and material well-being for low-income single mothers with newborns.
