Do you want to learn more about taking a parental leave as a grad student in Engineering?
 
Are you a supervisor who wants to learn more about supporting a student intending to take a parental leave?
 
The Women in Engineering Graduate committee is proud to present an information session on parental leave in grad school. The event will include information for both those interested in taking leaves, and those supporting students and post-docs taking leaves, like faculty members and research associates.

A GSPA representative was invited to present university guidance and resources available. Three other speakers will share their personal experiences: a supervisor and two grad students, one who took the leave and one who decided to not take it. Hear about what is expected from you, where to find support, and personal experiences of both taking and returning from leave.

Breakout roundtable discussions about navigating leaves as a future parent, or as supervisor will provide an opportunity for Q&A with our special guests.
 
Parenting is not gender-exclusive: all genders are welcome. 
What: Parental Leave Info Session
Where: E5-2004 with Hybrid MS Teams option
When: Friday November 10th from 11:30-12:30pm 


 Bring your own lunch - supplementary snacks and drinks will be provided.
