Men in Care. Workplace Support for Caring Masculinities.
“Men in Care is a European a 3-year project (March 2019-Feb 2022) of 12 national organizations (universities, social partners and NGOs) co-funded by the European Commission under the EaSI program (PROGRESS axis). Men in Care (MiC) aims to improve workplace conditions to promote men taking caring roles in seven countries (Austria, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Poland, Slovenia and Spain). MiC will assess how policies and workplace cultures can change to enable men to become more active in caring for children, elderly, partners, co-workers and friends. This project aims to involve workers, trade unions, employers, and families in identifying and sharing best practices for achieving a high level of work-life-balance for employees. Not only women but also men want to have time and flexibility to care for themselves and others.”
