    ( 2019-01-22) Ferri, Bonnie H. ; Harrington, Kim D. ; Stein, John M. ; ; Georgia Institute of Technology. Institute Diversity ; Georgia Institute of Technology. Office of the Provost ; Georgia Institute of Technology. Division of Student Life ; Georgia Institute of Technology. Human Resources
    While working towards their Ph.D. degree, students sometimes feel challenges in balancing the demands due to coursework, Teaching Assistant (TA) or Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) responsibilities, research, funding, preparation for the next steps in their career, etc. Similar challenges are faced by post-doctoral fellows as well. The challenges and the potential stress can be compounded if the student/post-doc also needs to manage family responsibilities, including the care of a small child (or children). In a dialogue event held during Fall 2018, students and post-doctoral fellows shared some of the challenges they face while managing research/work and family responsibilities. This event will focus on current and potential mechanisms and resources that could alleviate these challenges or provide support.
