  • 1.  Call for in press or published papers on the impact of Covid-19 in Work-Life Boundaries for Women in Academic STEMM

    Posted 27 days ago

    We are writing a commissioned research report with the first draft due at the end of October for the U.S. National Academies of Science, Engineering & Medicine on The Impact of COVID-19 on Boundary Management, Work/Life Integrations, and Domestic Labor for academic women, particularly those working in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine).

    We are particularly interested in research on
    - how personal and professional boundaries have been disrupted,
    - the policies or practices that colleges and universities have in place or implemented to encourage or support work-life boundaries and boundary management.
    -new or emerging coping mechanisms that are being used during this pandemic
    -how the how gendered expectations of domestic labor, have shifted or impacted professional labor.
    - the impacts on families and the challenges workers face protecting their own health and the health of their families.
    -challenges in managing dual career and child care, elder care and sandwiched care demands over the pandemic
    - new issues related to technology use and demands
    - the needs of intersectional women raised by the pandemic

    Please send us any work you have for consideration for inclusion in the literature review as soon as possible to
