Parents Support Group
“Get to know each other”
Date: 16 May 2022
Time: 12:00 – 13:30
Why: The combination of parenthood and being a scientist, even before Covid-19, can be quite a challenge and it is very difficult establish a healthy work-life balance. To share these challenges and find solutions we would like to set up a parent network.
Goal: To enlarge the network of the group of scientist that are also parents and generate a support structure. The network can establish new friendships, helps to exchange tips and tricks about how to combine work and parenthood, but also about more general things like good daycare, babysitters and kids-friendly trips. Most important we hope in that way to initiate a group that gives each other (emotional) support and that can sometimes be as small as just listening.
Group: PhDs, postdocs and tenure trackers of EPS, PE&RC, VLAG, WIAS, WIMEK, WASS
How: Multiple lunch meeting throughout the year of 1 -1.5 hour ( 30 min discussion about a certain topic and 30 -60 min free chatting), on location in Campus/Wageningen. (We plan to organize these events also at other Universities. )
