B176 Mackintosh Corry, Seminar Room
Life balance isn't rocket science, but sometimes even contemplating it can feel that way. The academic career has roots in asceticism and devotion. Old values and habits die hard.
This workshop will begin with an invitation for you to consider a new perspective on life balance and fulfillment; one that is rooted in personal strengths and values. This will be followed by discussion and exchange among participants on:
- the challenges and stresses they face in balancing a life with an academic career component,
- suggestions and strategies for what works (and doesn't), and
- generating plans and recommendations for ongoing support and change toward balancing an academic career in the context of a life.
