President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will push for flexible workplace policies on Wednesday at a White House forum for business leaders, academics and policy experts.

“Millions of women and men across the country struggle to balance the demands of their jobs and the needs of their families,” the president said in announcing the Forum on Workplace Flexibility.

Several dozen participants are expected, ranging from small-business owners to the leaders of major firms, including the Sara Lee Corp., which is based in Downers Grove, Ill., and has 41,000 employees worldwide.
