Back in Autumn, MiC partners had the chance to meet online for our 3rd international partner meeting. The meeting, which was originally scheduled to take place in Oslo, was a welcomed chance for us to discuss developments and challenges within the framework of the Men in Care project.
At the end of a year which has been extremely challenging, and in fact changed the way a lot of us work and live, we are taking this chance to reflect on our experiences. Through work on the MiC project, partners are working to assess how policies and workplace cultures can change to enable men to become more active in caring roles (whether for children, elderly, partners, co-workers or friends). Of course, this means something very different now in comparison to the start of the project. Amongst other things, the Covid-19 pandemic has revealed new inequalities, meaning that research into a fair work-life balance is more important than ever.
