Engaging Dads icon

The Parent and Family Network invites you to an exciting event about ‘Engaging Dads’, led by Elliott Rae from the organisation Music.Football.Fatherhood, at 11:00 on Thursday 17 June.

It will be an online event that promises to be fun, interactive, informative and thought-provoking - intending to start a conversation about workplace culture and policies, and their impact on family and work life.

The active involvement of both parents in parenting duties at home has clear benefits for families, for relationships, for childcare, for business and for wider society. Engaging dads in the conversation around parenting and childcare is key to promoting better gender equality in work and at home.

This event is open to everyone, including dads, mums and any colleagues interested in improving workplace policies and culture for working parents.
