April 10, 2020: What is "Work-Life Balance" During a Pandemic?
For many of us, recent stay-at-home orders have challenged our regular work and study schedules. Students, faculty, and staff are working to reconfigure their "offices" in studio apartments; parents are scrambling to care for their children while also meeting work demands; and we are all rebuilding our daily schedules in response to the changes--and anxieties--of living through a global pandemic. In this discussion, we will air our frustrations around work-life balance, celebrate successes, and brainstorm strategies for getting by--all the while rooting our conversation in what we know about gender, race, and class inequality and myths about "productivity."
Facilitated by Dr. Kelly Maginot, Assistant Director of Advocacy Services.
