Mothers In The Middle : Bridging Family and Work

This Summer Institute will identify the forces – attitudinal, governmental, legal, economic, – that perpetuate the cultural marginalization of motherwork and give rise to the incompatibility of employment with motherhood and to consider how best to challenge and change these factors. The institute will explore how factors such as public policy, law, work practices, cultural attitudes, childcare, and childrearing/domestic labour in the home work towards and against mother's employment participation. The Institute will provide a forum to explore how we can better support mother's labour participation and enable her to achieve a work-family balance.
