Craig WilkinsonCraig Wilkinson

Craig Wilkinson is a South African author, speaker, and social entrepreneur who is passionate about the crucial role men play in the lives of their children and society. He is the author of two books on fatherhood: the best-selling DAD: How to Be the Father Your Children Need and It’s a DAD! Every Man’s Guide to Pregnancy, Birth, and Becoming a Father. Wilkinson founded and runs the nonprofit company Father a Nation (FAN), which restores, equips, and inspires men to be great fathers, role models, and mentors. To support his work with men in the fight against gender-based violence, he authored a booklet called No Excuse for Abuse and another on authentic masculinity called The 6 Pack of Champion Virtues. This material is used extensively to equip and inspire men and boys to live with positive, healthy masculinity.

For his work with men in communities, Wilkinson was awarded the GQ Humanitarian Man of the Year award in 2019.
