Event Description

Women who are mothers and work as faculty often face issues that their male colleagues who are fathers do not. This is often a result of gender norms, roles, and expectations related to motherhood and women. Faculty mothers can face obstacles in balancing work and family life, and issues in forming relationships at work. This can be especially challenging for women who teach in male dominated or traditionally masculine fields or where there are no, or few, other women who are mothers. In this workshop, you will take part in activities to highlight strategies and techniques for improving these situations and experiences. You’ll also work to identify an issue you may face and some ways you could improve it. Lunch is provided.  A stipend is available for eligible participants. Registration is required.

If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
