Panel Discussion (Penn State)

When: Tuesday, April 28, 2015 - 4:00pm - 5:15 pm
Where: Living Center, 110 Henderson Building
Name: Donna Korzick

As part of our ongoing career planning discussions, join us for some straight talk on balancing work and family at various stages of the academic life cycle.  In this interactive session, we will field your questions on the joys and challenges of balancing families and science careers. Our goal is to share strategies, decision points and some thoughtful reflection on work-family issues you may confront as you move through the academic ranks at an R1 university. All graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are welcome!
