One Day Seminar: Academic Careers and Caring Responsibilities

7 June 2018

Dr Ana Basiri hosted a one-day seminar on academic careers and caring responsibilities on 20th June.


The academic career is very tough for researchers with caring responsibilities, including parents and the main carers of family members with (long-term) illness. CASA’s Dr Ana Basiri, along with UCL’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives, hosted a one day seminar on Wednesday 20th June addressing these issues, to look at the challenges of developing an academic career while having caring responsibilities, the support available for those facing these challenges, and the future actions that could be taken.

This event is open to PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, teaching and research fellows, and academic staff from different departments, background, gender, race, and experience levels. Attendance is free but registration is required, for full details of the event and how to register please go to the event page here.
