. Raising your chicks as an ornithologist. Led by Kim Sullivan.

This interactive, lunchtime workshop is for experienced and new parents as well as those considering parenthood. Ornithologists produce few children compared to other academic disciplines.  Many ornithologists cite the difficulties of combining field work with family formation. This workshop will allow participants to share information on what works in combining their professional life with parenting. We will discuss what to say when applying for jobs, negotiating parental leave, child care strategies and resources, field work solutions, and organizing your life to get your work done.

Schedule: Lunchtime July 30 – Exact time to be determined.
