DCA in partnership with Westpac and supporting sponsors Stockland, Origin and Allens, launched its latest research in our Get Flexible! campaign – this time on men and flexible working – on 28 August 2012.
Although not new, men and flexibility is currently a ‘hot’ topic driven by the increasing number of dual-earner families, intensified fathering expectations and growing recognition that flexible work can generate positive outcomes for men, women, families and organisations.
Engaging men in leading organisational change has of late been presented as the ‘silver bullet’ for delivering on flexibility, diversity and gender equality objectives. If men are to be charged with ‘changing the world’ in this regard, it is important that considered attention be brought to what this means in principle and practice for organisations. This report contributes to this objective.
