MenCare partners and colleagues from around the world will come together from November 19-21 in Rabat, Morocco and via remote participation to develop a joint agenda to advance international and national advocacy efforts, share best practices and evidence, and develop new and innovative ways to achieve men’s equal partnership in unpaid care work.

Across the three-day meeting, participants – practitioners, activists, government stakeholders, and academics – will share and exchange new findings, lessons learned, and reflections from the field of engaging men as fathers and caregivers for gender equality with a goal of creating a unified plan to put men’s caregiving on national and global agendas. More than ever, we need to create unified voices for social, political and economic justice.
The meeting will build on the recommendations highlighted in the State of the World’s Fathers 2019 report, to develop a roadmap toward and identify a shared international advocacy agenda to achieve equality in caregiving and gender equality more broadly.
This third global meeting will also provide insights and strategies for achieving a new MenCare effort: The MenCare Commitment. This ambitious commitment aims to multiply the power of care by engaging 50 countries to take action and to achieve a national goal of men doing 50 percent of the unpaid care work by 2030.
