How to Balance Parenting and Productivity Brown Bag Discussion Series

Modified: December 11, 2017

Managing parenthood can be overwhelming. Managing grad school or a postdoctoral fellowship can be equally stressful. So how do you handle both at the same time? Bring your lunch and drop by for any part of our 4 week discussion of the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity webinar How to Balance Parenting and Productivity, accessible through your Northwestern institutional membership.

Led by University of Delaware professor Rebecca L. Davis, the webinar helps participants identify specific strategies that will help them enhance their self-care, build networks of support, overcome feelings of guilt and shame, and boost their writing productivity.

We will discuss each week’s session, building on the class exercises and sharing our experiences implementing the suggested strategies.

You may attend on either campus:

  • Chicago: 4 Wednesdays at 1 PM, starting January 10, Women’s Center, Abbott Hall
  • Evanston: 4 Thursdays at noon, starting January 11, Women’s Center Lounge

Children are welcome. Dessert (including fruit) will be provided.
