What is Men in Care?

Men in Care (MiC) was a project of twelve national organisations from seven different European countries, which will help reduce barriers for men who want to become involved in caring activities. MiC aims to improve workplace conditions to promote men taking caring roles and will assess how policies and workplace cultures can change to enable men to become more active in caring for children, elderly, partners, co-workers and friends. Involving workers, trade unions, employers, and families, the project will enable men to take time to care for themselves and others. Find more information on the project here.

Joanna Pająk from Diversity Hub (MiC partner) and Joanna Gotfryd from "Mamo pracuj" ("Mummy work, if you want to") discussed "Men In Care: How to reduce barriers for men who want to become involved in caring activities" at the D&I Changemakers Conference.

The discussion focused on the following themes: "How should we understand the term 'caring roles performed by men'? Did the pandemic change the behaviour of men in the context of caring roles? How to include men in performing caring roles? What activities / support are possible on the part of the organisation, of the manager, of the team? How does the company that supports performing caring roles by men benefit from it?"

The presenters also shared the results of the research conducted in 7 European countries within the MiC project.
