Since we are a group oriented to support women in science, we thought we should start hosting some events for moms or moms-to-be in science!
We will get together twice a month for tea and cookies (maybe lunch), and discuss anything and everything concerning parenthood during grad school. Some initial ideas for what to talk about are:
• Forming an accountability group for moms to chat about the problems you might face as a graduate mom, such as, inability to go to school, time management, focusing problems, etc.
• Discussing the policy-related problems current moms already faced, and how we can fix them for new moms-to-be.
• Scheduling play dates for the graduate kids.
• Just getting together to vent about the kids, research, or both!
