What We Offer

The Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN) was formed in response to the need for a membership association of interdisciplinary work and family scholars. Unique among professional societies, the WFRN provides an online peer-community with tools to strengthen connections among the global audiences interested in work and family. These include the only open access work and family subject matter repository, the Work and Family Commons, a News Feed, a Calendar of Events, the Early Career Fellows program, and much more!


We need you to be successful.  

  • Members are the driving force of the organization.  
  • Members lead and run the organization as officers and committee members.  
  • Members create the program as well as attend and present their research at the conference.  
  • Members take leadership roles in providing content of interest to the interdisciplinary work and family research community.


Your involvement will contribute to the vitality of academic work and family scholarship and ensures that high-quality work and family content continues to be available and accessible.
