The Department of Political Science, UCL is sponsoring a panel discussion on work-life balance and gender issues in academia. In this two-hour session the aim is to consider the following questions:

• How do academics negotiate work-life balance? What tips would you share with PhD students considering academia? • Which issues affect men and women equally? Which issues are unique to female academics? • How can universities better retain women academics and fix the ‘leaky pipeline’? • Can/should the institutional climate (of research) be changed to ameliorate the dual burden of tenure and family?

The event will be moderated by Dr. Jennifer Hudson of UCL and participants include Dr. Daniel Drezner, professor at The Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy, Tufts University; Dr Joni Lovenduski, Birkbeck College; Dr Stephen Bates, Birmingham University; Dr. Rainbow Murray, Birkbeck College.
