Dads are parents, too, and fatherhood pundit Josh Levs believes the time is here for much-needed changes in parental leave, gender equality and work-life balance policies that help moms and dads do their home and work jobs better while still allowing businesses to thrive.
Levs, a CNN reporter, discusses his findings and ideas for more dad-friendly work policies with NYC Dads Group co-founder Matt Schneider 6:30 p.m., June 2, at the 92nd Street Y in “All In: How Being an Engaged Father is Good for Business, Family, & Everyone.”
Levs, a father of three, has spent years reporting for CNN on air and online and serving as the network’s “dad columnist.” He successfully fought parent company Time Warner for equitable paid paternity leave when it denied him the same 10 weeks women (and men who adopted babies) received. The event helped spark the idea for his recently released book, All in: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses—And How We Can Fix It Together.
His reporting accolades include six Peabody awards, two Edward R. Murrow awards and a designation as a Journalist of the Year from the Atlanta Press Club.
