What does a universal pathway for men look like as they become fathers and on goingly as they integrate parenthood with work commitments?
Recently our Chief Services Officer, Kiri Stejko, joined a panel of experts on a Plus Paternal Webinar to talk about how we can support men to be a bigger part of the journey in the health care and workplace settings.
- Kiri Stejko (Chief Services Officer, Parents At Work)
- Dr Garth Kendall (Representative, Australian College of Nursing)
- Anita Thomas (Baby Makes 3 Program Manager, Carrington Health)
- Simon von Saldern (CEO, Healthy Male)
In this conversation the panel discuss the need for a fundamental shift in the way the health system and workplaces cater for the needs of men – from preconception to early fatherhood.
Initiatives that support the proactive engagement and care of men need to become standard practice. This requires policy, service-level, workplace and individual commitments to a philosophy that is truly inclusive of men and fathers.
