News Feed FAQ

What is the WFRN News Feed?

The WFRN News Feed provides the latest news and information to the work and family research community. It contains web content including blogs, briefs, calls for papers, job opportunities, news articles and newsletters, press releases, television and radio stories and websites of interest, all posted by members and interested others with a valid WFRN login.

How can I get the latest news?

There are several subscription and feed options available from the WFRN.

  1. Go the home page for the latest news. 
  2. WFRN members are automatically subscribed to a weekly email with News and Events plus a monthly email with new information (working papers, articles, reports, abstracts) from the Work and Family Commons (WFC), the WFRN open access subject matter repository.  If you'd prefer to not receive these emails, you can unsubscribe (at the bottom of the email) or contact us at workandfamily@sas.upenn.edu.
  3. Anyone (not only members) can subscribe to a daily email of News and Events via MailChimp.  If you were previously subscribed to our daily Feedburner email, your subscription has been transferred.
