The important role of fathers in society has been increasingly documented in recent research and by experts working with families, but it has not gotten the attention it needs from a broader range of policymakers and practitioners. This day-long forum, available to watch, sought to 1) share research and ideas, highlight promising practice, and explore policy opportunities to increase the engagement of both fathers with their children and social service organizations with fathers; and 2) raise awareness about the importance of fathers in helping children and families achieve their full potential.
