Caregiving responsibilities can pose special difficulties for both staff and students. Moreover, gendered assumptions related to caregiving are strong and pervasive, and may pose further difficulties. Here we link to resources which can help departments or other groups to improve their policies related to caregiving.
Sample policies, reflections and other resources
- A proposed gender neutral policy for Family Leave.
- An article discussing ways that conferences can better support childcare.
- A discussion of the effects of COVID19 on parents (especially women) in academia.
- A document collecting information on childcare provided by conferences.
