We are seeking papers for a stream on "The Work-life Interface for Workers with Diverse and Intersecting Identities." In this stream, we are particularly interested in research that takes intersecting strands of diversity into account and explores the work-life experiences of minority, marginalized, and/or under-researched groups of workers. These may include transgender individuals, other members of the LGBT community, ethnic or religious minority employees, workers with disabilities, and men. We encourage new insights, new possibilities, and new reflections, inspired by interdisciplinary approaches. Both empirical and theoretical approaches focused on diverse cultural and international settings are welcome. More information at:
