Work-Life Satisfaction: Developing Your Own Personal Action Plan

Saturday, 15 February 2014: 1:00 PM-2:00 PM
Grand Ballroom F (Hyatt Regency Chicago)
The never-ending demands of a career in science make it challenging to balance both personal and professional responsibilities. Developed by the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) and originally funded by the Elsevier Foundation, this workshop will help identify the levels of personal fulfillment and professional success that are right for each individual. It will also teach strategies to help achieve work-life satisfaction. Working alone and in groups, we will learn how to assess work-life satisfaction and how to divide finite resources (time, money, energy) between work and personal life. Participants will come away with the ability to define for themselves what work-life satisfaction is and is not and develop their own personal action plan.
