Reception and Workshop for Spouses and Partners of Doctoral Students: Navigating Work, Life, and Family

April 4, 2018 - 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Location: Grand Ballroom Lounge, 1209 Stamp 

Navigating Work, Life, and Family

The goal of this #Spartners session is to help spouses and partners of doctoral students ask the right questions in order to strategize around work, life, and family goals and responsibilities. The Office of Graduate Diversity and Inclusion (OGDI) will be on-hand during this session to point you to services and resources that help you navigate and manage work, life, and family responsibilities and find the right strategies/resources for you.
Work-Life-Family Integration:
Work-life-family integration is not the same for everyone, and they may even look different for you depending on the day, week, and semester.  In this session, OGDI asks “what does work-life-family mean to you? And, what tools are needed to navigate the moving pieces of work-life-family responsibilities?”
Deanna Barath, MPH, will briefly share her experience as a spouse and how she navigates work, life, and family integration at UMD.  Deanna is a Health Services Administration doctoral student at the University of Maryland and a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Research Scholar. Her interests are in the implementation of community- and evidence-based interventions and policies that improve health equity for vulnerable populations.
This is a discussion-focused session reserved for doctoral students and their spouses and partners.
Hors d'oeuvres and a variety of foods will be provided.  

This event is part of 2018 Graduate Student Appreciation Week.
