Many students debate whether they should have a baby in graduate school or wait until their lives and careers are more established. This session will help you make a more informed decision about what it means to start a family, including:
- A panel discussion featuring a faculty member and graduate students who are raising children. You will be able to hear firsthand about their experiences for integrating studies and careers with raising children.
- Hear about programs and resources available for students who are starting a family: University and Government leave policies; Funding options for pregnancy/parental leave; and resources for new parents.
- Self-assessment; you will have an opportunity to explore your own readiness to start a family.
