What does having a good work-life balance mean when working in a world-leading university? A Panel Discussion

The University of Oxford aims to offer an inclusive and flexible working environment that takes account of and supports individuals’ lives and responsibilities outside of work. Yet, the pressurised higher education context can often make it difficult to manage a work-life balance successfully.

This panel discussion, organised by NDCN, RDM, and Surgical Sciences, will explore the different forms that a positive work-life balance might take, and communicate the policies and potential options for flexible working. By providing a range of experiences from across the career pipeline — men/women, clinical/non-clinical, academic/support — it is hoped that the session will help you reflect upon your own working practices and develop a balance that works for you.
