“Failing Families, Failing Science: Work-Family Conflict in Academic Science.” – presented by Dr. Elaine Ecklund.
Scientists struggle with balancing work and family life like everyone else while simultaneously trying to meet a nearly impossible professional “ideal.” This talk will explore how the “greedy institution” of academic science is uniquely challenging and demanding, how gender and institutional structure shape science careers, and how science careers, in turn, shape family life.
