Just Announced: Founder, Chairwoman and CEO of Care.com to Speak at HourMinds 2017
What started as a young mother trying to care for two small children and aging parents, has turned into the world’s largest online destination for finding and managing family care. Care.com now has more than 22 million members across 19 countries and at HourMinds 2017, its Founder, Chairwoman and CEO, Sheila Lirio Marcelo, will share her story and her passion for leadership, technology and the care economy.
In her keynote address, “Disrupting Ourselves: Reimagining the Role of Employers for the Future of Work,” Sheila will talk about the changing role for employers in providing meaningful employee benefits, such as health insurance and child care assistance, to attract and retain talent.
As Care.com has grown and scaled, Sheila has been honored with numerous accolades, including one of the “Top 10 Women Entrepreneurs” by Fortune Magazine and the Filipino Heritage Award, one of the highest honors awarded for Filipinos. She has also presented alongside President Obama and with global leaders at Davos.
