For 15 years, Fathers Incorporated (FI) has stayed true to its mission of engaging, empowering and equipping a community network of fathers and families by creating an environment of support, parental education, positive societal narratives, and a father-focused blueprint to elevate the awareness of responsible fatherhood.
This year's theme, The Blueprint: Reimaging the Narrative of the Modern Dad is about getting the broader society to think differently about dads. This has been at the heart of Fathers Incorporated's 15-year journey in the field of fatherhood. Today, more than ever, society struggles with what it wants to see in dads and how it can support that effort.
Kenneth Braswell, CEO of Fathers Incorporated states, "The selected awardees have demonstrated their commitment to advancing the work and promotion of positive father involvement in the lives of their children and families."
