Stephen Sweet (Associate Professor, Sociology) organized the Sloan Work and Family Early Career Scholars Conference. The two day event, held October 14-15, 2009 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, brought together 27 recent Ph.D. recipients, 6 senior level scholars, and 3 publishers who shared common interests in work-family scholarship.
The conference examined future directions for work-family research, effective strategies for advancing work-family teaching and learning, and guidance on navigating career challenges. Funding for the travel of participants and networking events were provided through a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to the Sloan Work and Family Research Network.
