Why should I attend a WFRN conference?
The most recent WFRN conference, the 2016 conference, was a terrific, exciting event, held right in the nation's capital, right at the height of the presidential election season on June 23-25, 2016. About 650 work and family researchers from around the world (40+ countries) attended this event. WFRN President Phyllis Moen and the conference program committee worked hard to achieve four goals - that the conference be Informative, Interesting, and Interactive, as well as Fun! On the day before the conference (Wednesday, June 22) a Congressional Education and Policy Day was held on Capitol Hill, and the first day of the conference (Thursday, June 23) featured Practitioner Day, a program within the program of particular interest to practitioners as well as researchers interested in engaging with practitioners. There was time for Special Interest Groups to convene, and an array of special workshops including a Mentoring Workshop and Idea Incubators.
