Mark Zuckerberg posts baby picture to encourage active, loving fathers
In any given week, Mark Zuckerberg meets with big name politicians, celebrities and technology executives.
But two months after returning to work from his high-profile paternity leave, the Facebook CEO knows all of those bigwigs take a backseat to his own daughter, reports mashable.
On Thursday afternoon, Zuckerberg posted an adorable photo of himself feeding his precious daughter, with the caption: "Most important meeting of the day.”
The picture, one of several Zuckerberg has shared in recent months demonstrating his commitment to juggling family with a C-Suite job, is a new campaign from Lean In, a non-profit organization focused on helping women succeed professionally.
"#LeanInTogether celebrates the important role men play in creating an equal world," Sheryl Sandberg, one of the founders of Lean In and Zuckerberg's second-in-command at Facebook, wrote in an earlier post Thursday.
"Reaching equality is not just good for women — it is good for men as well. Children with active fathers are healthier, happier, and more successful. Men who are 50/50 partners have stronger marriages. And diverse teams at work produce better results."
Zuckerberg wasn't the only prominent figure to share a personal post in support of the LeanInTogether cause.
Business icons like Bill and Melinda Gates and Richard Branson joined in — as did a host of athletes including Kevin Durant and Tracey McGrady.
