The conference is one of the results of a June 1995 memorandum issued by President Clinton to the heads of all federal departments and agencies asking that they help him find flexible, responsible ways to support men in their role as fathers. The conference is hosted by the National Performance Review and will highlight approaches developed in various departments and agencies. In addition to Secretary Dalton, HHS Secretary Donna Shalala, Transportation Secretary Frederico Pena and HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros are also expected to attend.
