Despite ubiquitous rhetoric on work-life balance, truly balancing family and career remain elusive. In this workshop, Dr. Riché Barnes explores issues related to creation, limitations, or absence of policies allowing faculty and/or students to balance needs of work, family, and life outside the academy. Topics include: starting a family, setting realistic goals, strategies to handle super-productivity pressure, finding time for writing, pros and cons of conference trips with kids, prioritizing multiple demands, including partners and parents. What skills can academics bring to particular choices to achieve balance? Participants at any stage of their academic career and life course are welcome.
