Improving Work-Life Satisfaction for Women in Science


Monday, March 28 from 7:00-9:00pm

Location: Mitchell Earth Sciences Building 
Sponsor:   Palo Alto AWIS

Event details:  

For the 21st century woman, a career in science is very often a way of life and far more than "just a job." So how do you strike a balance on that tight wire of work-and-life? How can you achieve more satisfaction? By doing less work? This experiential workshop is designed with some tips and tools to help you maximize greater work-life satisfaction. AWIS in partnership with Elsevier Foundation has developed this interactive program to help you:

  • Find your internal "north star"
  • Assess patterns, triage stressors, and put disorder back into order
  • Learn to frame and reframe priorities
  • Discover your internal drive
  • Build up capacities
  • Infuse more confidence into your life

As an added bonus, program participants will have access to ongoing web-based programming and resources. In addition, your participation will assist AWIS in advocating on your behalf for improved workplace policies and practices.
