OUR COMMITMENT


Dove Men+Care is championing better paternity leave worldwide – as part of comprehensive, paid family leave – so that every expecting father has the chance to care for the people that matter most to him.

Research shows that when men have the opportunity to care for their children, everyone benefits: from communities and workplaces to the parents’ relationship. But while 89% of dads believe it’s important that companies provide paid paternity leave benefits, only 15% of U.S. men have access to them and, of those new dads, most don’t take their full time off.

To overcome these barriers and make paid family leave for fathers more common, so that someday every father can experience the benefits of paternity leave, we’ve set out to challenge restrictive stereotypes and improve policies through corporate collaboration, partnership, and a council of leaders in the industry.
