From policy to practice, funding, and organizational founding, women play a pivotal role in the promotion of responsible fatherhood. John C. Maxwell defines a leader as “one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” This session features three women—dynamic fatherhood program leaders—who know, go, and show the way to effective father engagement, strong program implementation, and continuous quality improvement.
Good leaders possess qualities that are unrelated to gender: honesty and integrity, compassion and commitment, inspiration and empathy, competence and confidence. But given the predominance of women in the human services sector, what unique perspectives do female leaders bring to fatherhood services? What specific challenges do they face? What resources do they rely upon to achieve success?
These highly-respected panelists described why and how they lead fatherhood efforts and what differences they are making for fathers and families across the country.
