This is a new pilot workshop that is being offered across the University to parents/carers who have recently returned to work after a career break.  The goal is to provide recent returners with the information, tools, support, and networks they need to ensure a successful and smooth return to work.  While all are welcome, the material will be aimed at parents/carers who have had a career break of at least 3 months, and who have recently returned to work within the last 6 months. 

This workshop will be tailored for professional and support staff members. 

Over the half-day workshop, you will:

  • Learn about relevant HR policies and practices, and have your questions answered by an HR team member;
  • Get an overview of the core skills needed to communicate with confidence and clarity, and practise some of those skills in a supportive environment;
  • Hear from a panel of returning carers who will share their tips on time management and balancing home and work demands;
  • Network and meet other recent returners from around the University over lunch.
