Faculty: Weigh in on work-life balance myth at roundtable discussion

Faculty members are invited to attend a roundtable lunchtime discussion about “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” an article published by Anne-Marie Slaughter, the first female director of policy planning at the State Department.

After serving two years in this historic role, Slaughter resigned to spend more time with her husband and two teenage sons. The article that she wrote about this experience appeared in The Atlantic and provides Slaughter’s views on the “myth of work-life balance.”

The discussion will take place Tuesday, April 15, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Spartan Room of the Thwing Center.

Panelists include Marjorie Greenfield, associate professor in the School of Medicine; LaShanda Korley, the Climo Assistant Professor of Engineering; Mark Singer, the Leonard W. Mayo Professor in Family and Child Welfare; and Usha Stiefel, assistant professor in the School of Medicine. Shannon Lundeen, director of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women, will facilitate the discussion.

The event is sponsored by the Women Faculty Leadership Development Institute of the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women.
