When Roles Collide: Caretaker and Scientist
Recent decades have brought greater distribution of family caretaking responsibilities, but women still carry the bulk of responsibility for child-care and caring for elders in the family. For women who are scientists, balancing a career with caretaking is no small feat — even moreso during a pandemic. This webinar will explore effective strategies for managing competing responsibilities and navigating these extraordinary times.


Resilience and Well-Being During Difficult Times
The pandemic has disrupted almost every aspect of life and work as we knew it. We’re living through unprecedented challenges, with new demands on our time, attention and energy. Something’s got to give, but what? Often, what gets the back burner — especially for women — is taking care of ourselves. And yet that’s essential to being able to be fully present and perform at our best. This webinar will explore the latest research on resilience and offer practical strategies for prioritizing your well-being.
