Postdoc Speaker Series: Work/Family Balance 5/19

May 12th, 2011 in General News, Postdocs

Figuring out how to juggle any career with the non-work part of life can be challenging but for a working scientist, there never seems to be a way to do it all.  The goal of this program is to give you some things to think about that could make a real difference in your success at work and happiness in general.  And sometimes it just helps to meet with others and realize that you are not alone.  Come to listen and share your ideas for enjoying both work and home.
