Towards Gender Equity and Work-Life Balance in Academia: lunch + film discussion

Film - Documentary | May 23 | 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. | 309 Sproul Hall

 Berkeley Postdoctoral Association

Join us for a lunchtime discussion and movie-screening with gender-equity specialist, Prof. Dr. Lucia M. Lanfranconi, currently a post-doctoral scholar at UC Berkeley’s School of Social Welfare. Lucia will showcase her Swiss documentary (with English subtitles) “Equality - A snapshot” based on her study on the implementation of Switzerland’s Federal Gender Equality Act and the consequences for the working lives of men and women. In an open discussion we will focus on how gender equity relates to long-term career prospects, part-time work and parenthood, especially as it relates to our experiences of being in academia.
