DADx - Why a pro-fathering culture benefits everyone

Fathers have evolved to be incredibly flexible in what they can provide for their families, so they can meet the demands of the situation they're in.

Lockdown is highlighting the need in modern times to value hands-on dads throughout society. On Tuesday 9 June at 2pm join Dr Mairi Macleod, Science Writer to find out why men are biologically adapted to be hands on dads when the conditions are right. How we can change workplace practice to let dads be dads? What the benefits to employers, dads and the whole family are? And could lock-down help change things for the better in the future? Join the conversation!


Mairi started out her career studying animal behaviour, and for her Ph.D researched the mating and reproductive strategies of wild samango monkeys in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa. On returning to the UK she began some reproduction of her own and so changed tack to more family-compatible work by becoming a freelance science writer. She has written extensively on human behaviour, relationships, and competition for New Scientist Magazine, the Guardian, the Observer, the Sunday Times, the Independent, Huffington Post, Psychology Today, and many more.
