About This Event


Women and men today need a toolbox of techniques to cope with the demands of academic life. This highly interactive workshop will share a framework for helping individuals better understand approaches to dividing time and attention between the many demands of work and personal life.

Participants will learn:

  • A framework illustrating the different approaches individuals bring to managing work-life boundaries.

  • The tradeoffs associated with different styles of work-life boundary management.

  • A process for moving towards a more productive and sustainable way of managing the boundaries between work and family.


Participants will be asked to complete the 10 minute WorkLife Indicator assessment prior to attending the workshop.  Once we receive your registration, we will email you a link to the assessment.  Results will be distributed to you during the workshop.
