Parental leave - what Aussie Dads are doing

24 August 2018

Men make up just 4.7 per cent of employees in private sector businesses with more than 100 workers who take primary carers’ leave, and less than a third of those who take either primary or secondary carers’ leave, according to 2017 data from the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.  
 
Clearly, there are a bunch of factors at play in these low numbers. For more, see The Wire and why not have a look at the free “Aussie Dads” photographic exhibition, sponsored by Westpac, at the Sydney Opera House 23-30 August, and Melbourne’s Victorian State Library 31 August – 5 September.
