HR Hosting Virtual Forum on 'Working from Home with Kids'


The Division of Human Resources will host an open forum about ways to balance working from home and your home life during the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on Wednesday, May 20, online.

The webinar will feature two SLU researchers who specialize in family dynamics. The open forum webinar will begin at 3 p.m.

About the Webinar

Whether you are working remotely or working outside the home, we know that the unusual circumstances brought about by Covid-19 have given you an additional role – that of teacher as well as parent.   Keeping up with your regular workload and tending to your children’s needs can sometimes seem to be an insurmountable burden.  Balancing these competing roles can leave you feeling frustrated that you are not handling either very well.  Help is on the way! 

Human Resources is presenting an open forum for parents to tell their stories, ask questions, exchange ideas, express frustrations, and get some pointers on how to cope.  

About the Speakers

Annie Garner, Ph.D.
Katie Heiden-Rootes, Ph.D.

If you have questions you would like to discuss with the speakers, send them here before noon on Tuesday, May 19.
