Status: This talk has been cancelled

A workshop for expectant, new and returning parents on maintaining a work/life balance.

This workshop is being offered across the University to parents/carers who have recently returned or are about to return to work after a career break. The goal is to provide recent returners with the information, tools, support, and networks they need to ensure a successful and smooth return to work. The workshop will be open to all who have recently returned or will be returning to work after taking a break for caring responsibilities, with a particular focus on those returning to work following a period or periods of parental leave, paternity leave, maternity or adoption leave.

Over the half-day workshop, you will:

Learn about childcare and other family support;
Learn about relevant HR policies and practices, and have your questions answered by an HR team member and the Head of Childcare Services;
Hear from a panel of returning carers (academics, researchers, and professional and support staff) who will share their tips on time management and balancing home and work demands;
Network and meet other recent returners from around the University over lunch.

Tea/coffee and lunch will be provided.
