A focus group will examine some of the hottest topics in fatherhood.
Dads In Business are linking up with the University Of Sheffield Management School to carry out a focus group around the topic of Dad and the management of the many roles that this entails.
The research has emerged out of discussions the site has been doing with global employers around fatherhood and its many facets.
Topics that the research will be looking at includes the rise in anxiety, dad guilt and the taboos that fathers face, particularly in the misguided bid to be an all-round superhero.
Dads in Business and the University of Sheffield Management School are keen to explore some of the traditional stereotypes around what a dad is and how that is changing – from being the ‘breadwinner’ to being an effective partner. There’s a lot of things to juggle and the researchers are interested to find out how dads manage these roles so we can create a better work environment, a better home environment and a happier, more productive dad both at home and at work.
The focus group, which takes place virtually on 19 October at 6p.m. BST and is free to attend, will examine questions about how fathers manage their multiple roles and touch on topics including what holds us back, what stigmas do we think exist, how are you feeling and about getting back to the workplace.
This 90-minute session is intended to guide the research leads as they pursue broader ideas for the rest of this year and into 2022. Much of the research will appear on Dads in Business as it happens.
