Too many dads struggle with juggling career and family. At IFI, we believe that financially supporting your family is a significant part of being a great dad and the workplace can be a vital source of encouragement, accountability, and guidance for the fathers of Illinois. What’s more, several studies show that a dad who’s invested at home makes a more effective and productive employee and manager.
The Illinois Fatherhood Initiative continues to explore new ways to inspire and equip working fathers. We pledge to expand our dedication to working fathers through lunchtime forums, fathering events with nationally-known speakers, resource development and statewide awards honoring father-friendly work environments.
