Panel Discussion on Work-Life Balance & Gender Issues in Academia
UCL School of Public Policy presents a panel on work-life balance and women in academics.
It will be moderated by Dr. Jennifer Hudson of UCL and participants include
Dr. Daniel Drezner, professor at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University
Dr. Joni Lovenduski of Birkbeck College
Dr Stephen Bates of Birmingham University
Dr. Rainbow Murray of Queen Mary College
The panel will be a two-hour session focusing on the following questions:
● How do academics negotiate work-life balance? What tips would you share with PhD students considering academia?
● Which issues affect men and women equally? Which issues are unique to female academics?
● How can universities better retain women academics and fix the ‘leaky pipeline’?
● Can/should the institutional climate (of research) be changed to ameliorate the dual burden of tenure and family?
The format for the panel is informal, with panelists offering 15-20 minutes of comments on any of the questions framing our discussion, followed by a question and answer session with the audience.
There will be a drinks reception in the Common Room of the School of Public Policy in the Rubin Building after the event.
