I've been involved in the "dadspace" as a blogger nearly since the beginning. As an early SAHD (1992-4), I recognized that no one was speaking for dads at that time, but in those nascent days of the internet, didn't see a way to effect change. FT gives me a platform to do now what I could not do then.

I'm a mom in a dual working-parent household, so I have a personal connection to the challenges of supporting men as caregivers and fostering co-equal parenting relationhips. I have also been a long-time researcher of and advocate for work/family integration and gender equity. I'm drawn to Fathering Together because supporting engaged fatherhood is critical to achieving those goals, as well as to advancing men's mental health and children's wellbeing.

Emily Williams, President

I believe engaged fathers have an important positive impact on their families and community and am happy to support an organization that supports the work of fathers. I am a father myself so I understand how challenging the role can be and the need for supportive community.

My Father was mostly a single parent and I understand how important it is for dads to have community and support.
