WFRN 2020 Conference
June 24, 2020 - June 27, 2020
New York City, NY
November 1, 2019

In collaboration with the College and University Work-Life-Family Association (CUWFA), WFRN is excited to announce the theme of the 2020 pre-conference ‘connection’ day: “On Our Own Campuses: Collaborating to Improve Worklife Programs in Higher Education“.

Shouldn’t our own institutions of higher education be models for worklife programs that meet the needs of a diverse workforce? Join CUWFA and WFRN in New York City as we bring together worklife researchers and practitioners to forge new directions for partnering on research to inform programs and policies on our own campuses. We will:

  • exchange ideas on promising directions for research to improve the effectiveness and reach of worklife programs in institutions of higher education around the world;
  • strategize together on how to overcome barriers to research partnerships and culture change at our home institutions;
  • consider broader lessons for the worklife field and how our efforts can inform public policy.

All WFRN members are welcome to attend; we assume that most attendees will not have conducted research in a university setting.

Please join us for collaboration, dialogue, bridge-building, and aspiration-setting on Wednesday, June 24th–the perfect “bridge” between the 2020 CUWFA and WFRN conferences. The day-long session and following reception will be held at New York University (NYU) with easy travel to conference hotels.

Registration information for the pre-conference connection day will be released in 2020. If you have any questions about the 2020 WFRN Conference or the WFRN/CUWFA Pre-Conference Day, please contact the WFRN Executive Office at
