"As managers it is time to play our key role in contributing to Stanford’s “culture of care” in which members of the campus community have the flexibility they need to meet the demands of their families, while also delivering on their university roles in the way they aspire; to meet the mission of this institution. As employees, we need to embrace the fact that our humanity is on full display and leverage the increased human interaction and connection to explore new accommodation opportunities that work for you, your manager, and your team.

Let’s commit to curiosity, partner to problem-solve, and extend compassion to ourselves."
