Special Careers Panel: A Career in Science or Kids? Can you have both? April 1, 17:30, Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre, MNI

Dear Neuroscience Students and Postdocs. This event is tomorrow evening.

• Do women really have to choose between an academic scientific career and the having a family?
• Are those who choose to have children taken seriously by their colleagues?
• Can one realistically succeed at both?
• With changing parental roles, are men affected by these issues more and more too?

Come to our discussion panel and hear from three McGill professors and a graduate student who have made the choice to do both. Get your questions ready and learn from their experiences.

When and Where:
April 1, 2014: 5:30 – 7:30 pm.
Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre, Montreal Neurological Institute, 3801 Rue University.

The Panelists and facilitators:

• Dr. Josephine Nalbantoglu: IPN Director and Prof.
• Dr. Cecilia Flores: IPN Prof.
• Dr. Alanna Watt: IPN Prof.
• Emily Coffey: IPN Graduate Student.
• Dr. Lauren Segall: Administrator at Concordia University.
• Dr. Joe Makkerh: Dad

Format:
Each panelist will talk for about 10 minutes each, giving an overview of their career, and what was involved in the decision to have kids and its timing. We may hear about any particular challenges and rewarding experiences the panelists faced.
The panel will have a further 10 minutes to collectively discuss any points raised by other panelists.
The floor will then be open to questions and comments.
Questions may also be sent anonymously to joe.makkerh@mcgill.ca to be read out to the panel.
Please RSVP to me, or on our public Facebook event:

This event is being organised as a joint effort with Dr. Lauren Segall from Concordia University.
