Family Committee Meeting

Are you a postdoc with a family or planning a family?  We need your input!

Calling all postdoctoral fellows with children or who have children or who are thinking of having children!  We want to make your family life easier with initiatives: 

  1. To improve communication and opportunities to get family support within Stanford and the Bay Area
  2. To coordinate child friendly events and social activities for parents and potential parents (e.g. discounts to children's museums, park activities) 
  3. To organize play groups
  4. To present Stanford administration with a comprehensive list with ways to improve postdoc lives with families (e.g. flexible spending accounts, subsidized childcare, back up care). 

We are the SURPAS family committee and would greatly appreciate your input on Monday 10/16/2017 at 10am - 11am in LKSC room 203/204. 

We'll have coffee and snacks to keep you awake and energized!  See you then!

If you are unable to attend, but have great ideas for how you can be better supported, please email the chair of the SURPAS Family Committee Sarah Eagleman at with [SURPASFamily] in the subject line.
