What does having a good work-life balance mean when working in a world-leading university? A Panel Discussion
Thursday, 16 November 2017, 2pm to 3pm
The MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, Oxford, OX3 9DS
Confirmed panel members include:
Matt Rowland, Clinical Lecturer in Intensive Care/Anaesthetics (NDCN)
Claire Edwards, Associate Professor in Bone Oncology (NDS)

The University of Oxford aims to offer an inclusive and flexible working environment that takes account of and supports individuals’ lives and responsibilities outside of work. Yet, the pressurised higher education context can often make it difficult to manage a work-life balance successully.
This panel disucssion, organised by NDCN, RDM, and Surgical Sciences, will explore the different forms that a postive work-life balance might take, and communicate the policies and potential options for flexible working. By providing a range of experiences from across the career pipeline -- men/women, clinical/non-clinical, academic/support -- it is hoped that the session will help you reflect upon your own working practices and develop a balance that works for you.
All University of Oxford staff and students welcome.
