It is a great pleasure to invite you to the 8th International Conference of Work and Family. The Conference will be held in Barcelona, Spain and it is organized by the International Center for Work and Family of IESE Business School.

The International Center for Work and Family founded an academic forum in 2005 –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. Speakers for the last conferences have included: Erin Kelly (MIT Management School), Kathleen E. Christensen (Sloan Foundation), Ellen Kossek (Purdue University), Tammy Allen (University of South Florida), Stephen Sweet (Ithaca College), Tim Hall (Boston University), Brad Harrington (Boston College), Marcie Pitt-Catsouphes (Boston College), Nancy Rothbard (Wharton) and Lisa Leslie (NYU Stern) among others.

The 8th bi-annual International Conference of Work & Family aims to focus on the role of Work-Family in the Pursuit of Happiness, as well as on employees’ needs, motivations and desires. We hope to explore new forms of flexibility, and how they relate to positive outcomes.
