S104: Journal Club: Pregnancy
Today on AcaDames, Sarah and Whitney discuss the joys and struggles of becoming a parent while working in academia. They discuss whether tenure makes taking family leave easier, how to maintain relationships with students while gone, and utilizing childcare to make the transition back to work easier. Is academia really the holy grail of work-life balance? How does the larger cultural environment shape university leave policies? Is there a “perfect time” for AcaDames to have children? Tune in to hear them answer these questions and more.
