Hi Friends! Today we are wrapping up our series on Men Making a Difference. If you haven’t listened to our other guests, I highly recommend going back and binging the last 3 episodes-they won’t disappoint!
Joining me today is advocate, author and TedX speaker, Josh Levs. Josh is a former CNN and NPR journalist, and the leading global expert on modern fathers in the workplace. He stepped into a global spotlight by taking legal action against Time Warner (CNN’s parent company) for fair parental leave so he could care for his preemie daughter and sick wife.
The company ultimately embraced his call, revolutionizing its policy to make it better for moms and dads.
He is the author of the award-winning book All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses–And How We Can Fix It Together.
After the release of his book, Levs became the leading voice for modern dads at work, shining a light on their unknown struggles.
I invited Josh on the show today to share his story, dispel some of the myths that give dads a bad rap, and shed some light on how we can work together with our spouses, employers and co-workers.
During our conversation we talk about stereotypes like:
● Moms do more work around the house than Dads
● Moms carry more mental load than Dads
● Dads having more leisure time
● Dads get to do the fun stuff, while Mom’s do more household chores
He offers strategies to improve work-life balance for BOTH women and men, and we discuss the impact that COVID-19 has had on family dynamics.
It’s a meaningful, thought provoking conversation that I hope opens the door for conversations, between couples everywhere.
