Building a father-friendly world

We all benefit when dads are empowered as caregivers: women, children, families, employers and society as a whole.

  • NEW CAMPAIGN: IT'S TIME TO #DADUP

    Narrow_Dad_up_Lock_ups_.jpgAfter the award-winning clarion call that was Year of the Dad, we're unleashing a new campaign to continue what we all started. It's time to #DadUp! Let us explain...

    WE HAVE A VISION to inspire and create a truly father-friendly world.

    A world where diversity is celebrated and the nurturing role of fathers is recognised and respected.

    Tired stereotypes trap both genders: what does "Man up" mean in a world where caring and earning are shared responsibilities?

    We all benefit when dads are empowered as caregivers: women, children, families, employers and society at large.

    So whether you're an organisation, a family or a firm, join us in this cultural revolution - and see both homes and workplaces flourish.

    Let dads do the hardest, richest job in the world.

    HELP THEM CARE. GIVE THEM LEAVE. RESPECT THEIR RIGHTS.

    It's time to #DadUp
