April 7, 2010 - 6:30pm
Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center
326 Galvez Street, Stanford

Free and open to all, registration recommended.

Whether you realize it or not, all that nagging housework can be eating into your job productivity and getting in the way of you getting ahead in your career – especially if you're a woman, says Londa Schiebinger, director of Stanford's Clayman Institute for Gender Research. Published on January 19, 2010 in Academe, Schiebinger's study shows academic scientists spend about 19 hours a week on basic household chores. The solution? Schiebinger urges universities and businesses to offer an employee benefit to pay for housework. Co-sponsored by the Anita Borg Institute, the panel will take place on “No Housework Day”. Free and open to all. Registration recommended (click on more information).
