Work-life integration is often perceived as a personal responsibility, a combination of realistic goal setting, good time management and self-care. However, individual efforts are strongly influenced by institutional policies, systems, resources and culture.
The work-life integration subcommittee advocates for requisite resources and fosters a supportive institutional culture by:
- Raising awareness of disproportional effects of work-life demands on women
- Identifying and bringing attention to issues that make it difficult to integrate or, when appropriate, segregate work and life demands for women and men
- Improving policies and increasing access to resources that support work-life integration
Our mission is to make it easier for people to navigate the tight rope of work-life balance by nurturing a culture of support and well-being.
