Brian Anderson is a husband and father to two spirited daughters that keep him inspired and exhausted every day. In his professional life, he has been a social worker, community organizer, university chaplain and interfaith leadership development consultant.
As the Co-Founder and Executive Director of Fathering Together, he brings those experiences to empowering fathers to be agents for social change. He has worked with dads from a variety of backgrounds to help them achieve deeper relationships with their families and connections in their work and communities.
He wears many hats, specifically as a coach for dads, spiritual director, community organizer and non-profit leader.
In our conversation today, we will be covering the start of the Fathering Together non-profit, his book “Fathering Together: One dad’s journey to building a village and the current “This Working Dad cares” campaign. As I am a big believer that unpaid care work is for everyone, I was really appreciative that Brian shared some insights from his attendance at the recent Power Plus Summit at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research.
