International Men’s Day 19th November 2017

Every year we celebrate International Women’s Day, but that's only one side of the equality puzzle.  As someone who's as committed to equality as we are, you'll know that it's only by both men and women working together can we improve.  That's why this year we are also celebrating International Men’s Day, 19 November 2017.  To make it easy for you to show your commitment, we're offering a series of 6 workshops which will recognise and support your dads at work:

  1. Work life balance for dads
  2. New and expectant dads
  3. Practicing patience for dads
  4. Exploring the roles of father and professional
  5. Time management for working dads
  6. Flexibility for working dads

The time is right too.  This year’s Modern Families Index by Working Families brought a crucial message to all of our agendas:  If we don’t support working dads in our organisations we run the risk of the ‘fatherhood penalty’ – this generation of fathers losing out on either parenting or career opportunities, or both:

  • 69% of fathers said they would consider their childcare arrangements before they took a new job or promotion
  • Fathers are now more likely (47%) to want to downshift into a less stressful job
  • 38% would be willing to take a pay cut for better work-life balance

Our workshops will bring together the fathers in  your organisation, and encourage them to discuss their challenges, hopes and fears, as well as plan for a healthier work/family balance.  The benefits?  Happier, healthier, more engaged and productive workforce, and a strong cultural message that working and parenting is a 50:50 male/female split.
