Elizabeth Gedmark

Vice President

As a staff member at A Better Balance since 2011, Elizabeth Gedmark has leveraged the power of the law to help families suffering from discrimination at work and to advance more family-friendly laws and policies, particularly in the South since A Better Balance’s Southern Office was launched in 2014.

Elizabeth was part of the A Better Balance team that worked for years to advocate for passage of the federal Pregnant Workers Fairness Act and the PUMP for Nursing Mothers Act, as well as dozens of state pregnancy accommodation laws, and is now working to implement and enforce those laws. In the South, Elizabeth has worked on several campaigns to expand paid family and medical leave to workers in the region, especially in the public sector.

Elizabeth is a co-author of the book, Babygate: How to Survive Pregnancy and Parenting in the Workplace. Elizabeth has served on the New York City Bar Sex and Law Committee, IWPR’s Status of Women in the South Advisory Committee, and the Nashville Mayor’s Council on Gender Equity. She has a J.D. from the New York University School of Law and a B.A. cum laude from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, NC.
