Working Families Workshop

Thu 9 Jun 2022


This workshop would be of benefit to someone who has taken a period of maternity, adoption, paternity/maternity support, or shared parental leave and returned to work. It could also be of interest to anyone who needs to re-evaluate their work/family balance and career direction.

The workshop covers concerns and fears about managing work and family commitments going forward, and how to do so without guilt. We will also cover why “good enough is good enough”, the importance of self-care and finding support from those around you.

Becoming a parent is a huge life event, it can be difficult and stressful. To support University staff we are offering two new workshops to support staff to navigate through this life change.

Open to those who are about to take, or have already returned from, a period of maternity, adoption or shared parental leave, the workshops will be held in small groups to encourage personal reflection and discussion with others.

They will be facilitated by a qualified coach and member of the EDI team who will help individuals navigate their personal change journeys during the transition to and from parental leave. Links and information on internal policies and resources will also be made available.

Please note these sessions will be run face to face, however if you would be interested in a virtual session please do indicate your interest and we will look at organising these at a later date.
