SURPAS Family has been quiet but EXTREMELY BUSY lately to make sure the voice of postdocs with dependents is heard at this critical time of the affordability task-force. This is our chance to make a difference so please join us over coffee to share your input and hear about the latest achievements of SURPAS Family on Thursday March 7th, 11AM-12PM, Clark Center S363.
Coffee and snacks will be served.
On the itinerary:
Short presentation of SURPAS Family survey data
Discuss plan of action for the affordability task force following our discussion with Will Talbot, Senior Associate Dean of Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs. What are the priorities of postdocs with families?
SURPAS Family has been invited to participate in the Stanford Childcare Working Group.
SURPAS Family has been selected for presenting its advocacy initiatives during the annual meeting of the National Postdoc Association (NPA) on April 12-14, Orlando, FL. What efforts would you like to share at the national level?

Your opinion matters! Please share your personal experience/challenges as a postdoc parent, future parent or with dependents at Stanford HERE. Your personal stories NEED to be heard in order for the things to improve.
