Today on the Dads with Daughters Podcast we speak Josh Levs, an entrepreneur, former CNN and NPR journalist, and the leading global expert on modern fathers in the workplace.
Josh Levs is also the author of the award-winning book All In: How Our Work-First Culture Fails Dads, Families, and Businesses–And How We Can Fix It Together. The United Nations named him a Global Champion of Gender Equality. (Watch his opening remarks at the U.N.) The Financial Times named him one of the world’s top 10 male feminists. A New York Times front-page story declared him “a pioneer.” He has testified in Congress, won a debate on feminism at Oxford, and is a leading business consultant and keynote speaker.
Levs spent 20 years reporting for NPR and CNN, where he developed unique expertise on nonpartisan fact checking. On TV, he has been called “Truth Seeker in Chief,” “Mr. Reality,” and “Senior Everything Correspondent.” He also created a role covering modern families and developed unprecedented expertise in assessing the realities of today’s dads.
Levs then stepped into a global spotlight by taking legal action against Time Warner (CNN’s parent company) for fair parental leave so he could care for his preemie daughter and sick wife. The company ultimately embraced his call, revolutionizing its policy to make it better for moms and dads.
With the publication of his book, All In, Levs became the leading voice for modern dads at work, shining a light on their unknown struggles.
