Course Description

Balancing family life and an academic career often is a big and nowadays well known challenge. In 2016 the UZH signed the Charta "Family Life and Academia" in order to support all UZH members by means of specific infrastructures, instruments and - what is even more important - a family friendly culture. But it is not only the institution that should aim for being an optimal place to work. It is – or should be - also a task of each individual to negotiate suitable life balance guidelines at home. For the institution as well as for our private environment unconscious bias plays an important role when it comes to establish such appropriate instruments and a good life-balance culture.
