About the event

Are you considering returning to academia after having a significant amount of time off, or have started thinking about taking an extended leave?

Getting back to the workforce after a long leave such as for maternity leave, an extended illness or travel break can be a daunting prospect. It can be a challenge to re-enter the workforce and pick up where you left off, let alone to deal with the negative perceptions that sometimes come with extended leave.

However, with the right strategies and management of expectations, resuming your job after a break can also be a rewarding experience.

In this upcoming webinar, lead of the Women in Research initiative, ARC Laureate Fellow and John Curtin Distinguished Professor Sharon Parker (Curtin University), will be joined by ARC Laureate Fellow Professor Kerrie Mengersen (Queensland University of Technology) to share their strategies for a successful return to work.

They will also be joined by Dr Rachael Potter (Research Fellow at the University of South Australia) who will discuss a national research project she is conducting that focuses on the work challenges faced by parents and parents-to-be.

We look forward to seeing you online!


All women-identifying academics who engage in research as part of their role, Level A to Level E, across all disciplines and universities/research institutions
