This Month's Content Theme

June’s MARC Community Theme is “Fatherhood and Paternity Leave.” Research consistently correlates men’s use of parental leave with greater life satisfaction and a reduction in gender inequality. And yet many men are reluctant to take leave—even when they’re entitled to generous paid time off. So what can we do to encourage broader use of parental leave?
Interested in writing on this topic? Here are some questions to get you thinking:
  • What stops men from taking parental leave?
  • How can organizations encourage men to take parental leave?
  • How can leaders and managers encourage the use of parental leave?
  • What kind of leave policies promote greater equality in the workplace?
  • What impact does a father taking parental leave have on a family’s well-being?
  • How is the idea of a father’s role in the family evolving?
  • How can men have healthy relationships with their partners and children?
