They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Even moreso for this awesome infographic that the White House issued as a lead-up to the recent Summit on Working Fathers and Summit on Working Families (I am proud to be a participant in both of these efforts). To me, this graphic reinforces three important messages:
- To Working Dads– You are not alone. Many share the same challenges that you do.
- To Employers– Why you can and should be part of the solution, not just because it is the right thing to do, but because it is good business to do so
- To Everyone– This graphic makes it clear that working fathers’ concerns are really important for company and public policy. The fact that the White House and so many employers are giving them increased attention is a sure sign of progress.
