In honor of Martin Luther King Jr, today is the day that we chose to share our new inclusion statement. We understand that we’re an organization that can appear to be under-representative of the diversity we know to exist in the at-home dad community. We are working to change that perception. Our organization is a space where all at-home dads are welcome to participate and we wanted a strong message to make that clear.
The National At-Home Dad Network is an inclusive community committed to equality, education, esteem, and empowerment.
We know that a great community includes a diversity of individuals, ideas, inputs, ideologies, and inspirations. It is not surprising then that we are strongly committed to inclusion.
We value respectful discourse and a free flow of ideas.
We welcome, facilitate, and respect a diversity of ideas, experiences, cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds. In fact, we demand it.
We will defend all members against hatred and bigotry.
As a result, The National At-Home Dad Network is made up of individuals of all abilities, backgrounds, religions, races, cultures, ethnicities, sexual orientations, genders, ages, and expressions.
This commitment to diversity and inclusion not only makes us who we are, but it also makes us better, more creative, more innovative, more understanding and more outstanding.
Above all and including all, we will continue to work to create a safe space for everyone to contribute, to grow, to learn and to redefine fatherhood.
