Research Conference


In 2005, the International Center for Work and Family founded an academic forum –the International Conference of Work and Family- to create a vision and to build theory, with special attention to the cross-cultural dimension and the application of theory in an organizational context. 

The fourth bi-annual International Conference on Work and Family, aims to focus on innovations in work and family research and practice, with special attention to disregarded themes such as fatherhood and diverse methodological approaches to study work and family.

The Conference will also cover a wide range of topics that address current problems in the field. For example, how do individuals, couples, and organizations innovatively cope with increasing personal and socio-economic pressures? Can individuals and couples enrich their work and family lives when their personal and professional responsibilities increase and vital resources come under threat? How do organizations enhance the positive interaction among their employees to unlock their full potential and increase organizational performance? What are the implications of fatherhood and gender in the current economy? How do global corporations manage work-and family relationships across borders? What are the impacts of changes in the global economy and national economies on work-family agendas at national, organizational and individual/family levels?
