When men lean in for equality, they win—and so does everyone else

Men have an important role to play in reaching equality, and everyone benefits when they do. Children with involved fathers are happier, healthier, and more successful. Couples who share responsibilities have stronger marriages. Diverse teams and companies produce better results. Leaning in is not just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do. Proud to #LeanInTogether.

Choose which roles you’ll play to

There’s simply no substitute for hands-on fathering. Help your kids with their homework, read books with them, talk about their daily experiences and dreams. You don’t have to be perfect—you just have to show up, teach, and play.
