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.

The Working Parents Club - Coming together event in Poland

The Working Parents Club by State Street Bank was the perfect opportunity to present and discuss the results of "Men in Care" project with over 200 people, including parents and children.

On 5th June 2022, The Working Parents Club was organised by State Street Bank in Krakow, Poland. The event presented the perfect opportunity to discuss the results of the Men in Care project.

The founders of the Working Parents network were presented the MiC poster with the guidelines for employers by the project representatives from Jagiellonian University and Diversity Hub. The event also included a speech by a father involved in the care of his seven children,  (father of 7 children!) and a workshop for parents with child psychologists on sharing the caring roles.

In addition to the formal content, there were also fun activities for children and families as a whole - the event atmosphere resembled that of a large family picnic. 

The State Street Bank Working Parents Club has participated in the Men in Care project from the beginning and has contributed to the project findings by taking part in the research and sharing the good practices for working parents. The corporate parents' network often cooperates with Diversity Hub and other NGOs focused on parenthood and care work.
