Are you also struggling to find time to do sports, or to go grocery shopping? Or do you regularly catch yourself working in the evening or weekend? Time to think some more about your work-life balance! Join EWM-NL’s next workshop on work-life balance, specially tailored for female mathematicians!

The workshop will be given by Career & Live, specialist in the field of workload, stress and work-life balance. For this occasion, they will set up a humoristic, energetic and inspirational workshop, aimed at female scientists. With the group, we will first define work-life balance, since it is different for everyone, and discuss how this balance can be improved and managed. We will also discuss how work influences our personal life, and how personal matters can influence work. We will be informed about positive and negative stress, and on how to decide when the stress level is too high. At the end, we hope to achieve `smart working’: less work pressure, less work stress and a better work-life balance.

The workshop will take place on Monday November 6 from 14:00 – 17:00 at the VU Amsterdam. There will be drinks and some snacks afterwards to have a chat with the other female mathematicians and to get to know each other better.

The workshop and the drinks are free of charge. If you want to participate in the workshop, please fill in the registration form before Monday October 23. We highly recommend you to register as soon as possible. We only have assured places for the first 15 registrations, but we can expand the workshop in case of more registrations.

EWM-NL meets Math departments

EWM-NL will make a tour through the Netherlands to meet all mathematicians at the Dutch math departments. This is a chance for all male and female mathematicians to get to know us better, discover the various activities we have been organising, and discuss about gender balance, mathematics, academia and other hot topics. We are looking forward to meeting you at your department!
