Three Initial Steps To Become Father Friendly
1. Encourage Fatherhood By Portraying Positive Images of Diverse Fathers
Materials, illustrations, posters, brochures and other collateral include positive, diverse images of fathers. Think of fathers and fatherhood when choosing positive images, photographs or other materials for public display.
2. Train Staff on Fatherhood Issues and Father Friendly Practices
Strive to provide training for all staff on working with men and on fatherhood issues. Provide staff with trainings on father friendly practices and principles.
3. Ensure Men’s Restrooms and Family/Gender-Neutral Restrooms Contain A Changing Station for Fathers
Strive to ensure all restrooms are equipped with changing stations in order to support fathers as caregivers in public spaces.
