Date: Thursday, April 4, 2019
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location: Webinar (access details will be provided)

What happens when family responsibilities clash with academic expectations?

Thinking about how to start a conversation with your supervisor about family priorities can be stressful. Join the Graduate Conflict Resolution Centre (Grad CRC) for a webinar about the challenges of talking to your supervisor about family and learn the key negotiation strategies that will help you to become more effective at discussing your family needs with your supervisor.

By the end of this webinar you will:

  • Feel more confident about having a discussion with their supervisor about family issues
  • Be able to identify supports available to graduate students and techniques that may help them prepare for discussions with supervisors about family issues
  • Understand the importance of preparation for any discussion with a supervisor aimed at reaching an agreement (i.e. negotiation)
