This documentary was commissioned and produced by Parents At Work – a social enterprise providing world leading education and policy advisory services to create family friendly workplaces.

Parents At Work brought the Swedish Dads Photographic Exhibition to Australia in 2017, in partnership with The Embassy of Sweden, the Swedish Institute and a collection of corporate sponsors. Award winning photographer Johan Bävman was invited to join the business leader and community discussion as well as take a series of Aussie Dads photographs on his visit.

This documentary highlights the issues that Australia – and many other countries face – when it comes to supporting men take parental leave. It also highlights the benefits to families, society and business when we support both men and women to take a more active role in caring for children in the early years of life.
