Dual-career issues are increasingly important in higher education today. Over 70 percent of faculty are in dual-career relationships; more than a third are partnered with another academic. This trend is particularly strong among women scientists, and junior academics of all genders. Universities are seeing an increasing number of high quality candidates for faculty positions partnered with another academic. This presents universities with a challenge, but also a great opportunity to diversify their faculty. The challenges and rewards for University administrations and dual career couples will be discussed and experiences shared.
A light lunch is included in the ticket price, this is subsidised and so places are limited to the first 50 applicants. You may attend without a ticket in which case lunch will not be provided.
