Webinar 16: Crafting your job for meaning and purpose
Time & Location

About the event
Research has shown when people are able to control their work, they can feel more fulfilled with their jobs and find it easier to stay committed to their work.
Job crafting can be useful for an individual who are seeking more satisfaction in their work life. By initiating simple changes in your work environment and tasks, you can lead a more fulfilling and enjoyable work life, without needing to change jobs.
So how can you shape and mould your job to better suit your preferences, passions, strengths, and interests? How can job crafting be applied to women in academia?
Host of the Women in Research 'Small wins' webinar series, ARC Laureate Fellow and John Curtin Distinguished Professor Sharon Parker from Curtin University will share some of her research findings around well-designed work and evidence-based strategies to help you craft your own job.
She will be joined by Professor Sara Dolnicar, an ARC Laureate Fellow at the University of Queensland who will share some of the challenges she faced and the lessons she learned around building a meaningful and satisfying career.
You can submit your questions to the guests upon registrations. We hope to see you online!
