Prospering in an academic career is a complicate matter of carefully combining work and home so as not to lose oneself, hurt the loved ones while keeping a foothold on success. The objective of this workshop is to help our members improve their work-life balance. Participants will meet, discuss, share, ask questions and get advice from five female and two male senior academics who managed both!
