Work-Life Balance

These distinguished women scientists explained how they balance work with their life, focusing primarily on the timing of when or when not to start a family, trade-offs they've had to make, support from others, and work priorities. 


​" ​​The number one obstacle for women in academia is that issue of how to work out that balance. Especially because, you know, even my most progressive male-father friends just don't do as much caregiving as women do. That's just not equal.” ​ ​​​​​​


-Lisa Diamond
