Join Us on January 28 to Discuss the Case for Global Paternity Leave

A father and his infant child asleep together.What: Where’s Your Daddy? The Case for Global Paternity Leave
When: Wednesday, January 28, 12:15 pm – 3 pm EST
Where: New America, 1899 L Street NW Suite 400, Washington, DC 20036 (and live online!)

Many new fathers spend the days and weeks after their baby is born roughly the same way: at the office, buried in work. Around the world, paid paternity leave policies are still relatively rare. And even when a country or business has one, it’s often still culturally taboo for a man to use the time. Why should we worry about the lack of paternity leave policies around the world? And how do we bridge the gap between progressive policy and slowly changing global culture that too often continues to malign the man who takes leave? Where are the global paternity leave success stories – and the cautionary tales?

Join New America and MenCare’s global co-coordinator Equimundo for an afternoon of discussions that explore how paternity leave policies benefit not only children and families, but also the bottom line of both businesses and countries.
