Equality Diversity and Inclusion Event And networking reception

One of the big challenges in academia is juggling an ever-increasing number of commitments, from teaching to service to administration, with research and impact activities. There never seem to be enough hours in the day to handle all of the demands, and work then intrudes more and more into personal life.

As a consequence both work and personal time suffer. Chaired by Dr Catherine O'Leary and sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the University of St Andrews, this panel of Canadian and UK academics will explore a central question: how to maintain work-life balance and succeed in academia?

The panel will explore what measures, both at the personal and institutional level, can be put in place in order to maintain a healthy work-life balance and what barriers exist that need to be addressed to improve the working environment in academia.

This event is free to attend and is open to all staff, students and members of the public. The event will be followed by a networking reception.

Please register for the event.
