On behalf of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation, Mathematica is conducting a study to understand key programmatic approaches to father engagement across human services practice fields. As part of this study, Mathematica hosted a webinar on anti-bias and anti-racism strategies that human services programs serving fathers have used to build a culture of inclusivity and better engage and meet the needs of fathers. Mathematica moderated a panel of father engagement experts from the child welfare, child support, and fatherhood fields who spoke to how policies can perpetuate racial inequity, how programs can develop a culture of inclusivity, and provide examples of anti-bias and anti-racism approaches.
