Improving Work-Life Satisfaction

Given the work environments and expectations for women in science, and the fact that a career in science is very often a way of life and far more than a job, work-life balance satisfaction can be elusive. While advocating for change in policies and systems continues to be important, women must find the personal work-life balance strategies that work for them within the systems in which they work.  As a benefit to AWIS chapter members and in partnership with the Elsevier Foundation, this interactive program and follow-up web-based materials and resources will help participants:
  • Define for themselves what work-life satisfaction is and is not
  • Understand how incongruence between priorities and actions can drain energy and negatively impact work-life satisfaction
  • Examine how their current choices impact work-life balance and identify changes that will have the biggest impact on personal and professional satisfaction
  • Identify 7 keys to achieving and maintaining work-life satisfaction
  • Craft a personalized plan to improve work-life balance satisfaction
In addition, your participation will assist AWIS in advocating on your behalf for improved workplace policies and practices.  To bring this program to your workplace, contact Cindy Simpson at or call 703.894.4490.  To find out the location of upcoming programs, click here

"My focus is networking and career development for women in science. That’s why I like the multi-disciplinary nature of AWIS. The women are from all sectors of the work force. As a member of the San Diego chapter of AWIS, I got to learn about networking and how powerful it can be."
