This is a reminder that 2020 membership benefits will lapse beginning in February 2021. If you have not yet renewed, please follow this link to learn more.

This year is especially important for the WFRN. In the past, WFRN has been organized around a bi-annual in-person conference, augmented by resources for members on the WFRN website. Although we still plan to hold in-person conferences bi-annually, we are transforming WFRN into a year-round community by offering opportunities to share knowledge and ideas throughout the year, every year. This transformation builds on the success WFRN has had in bringing members from around the world together as part of the 2020 WFRN Virtual Conference. In 2021, we anticipate holding several online events that focus on enduring work-family issues, racial justice, ramifications of COVID-19, and practical applications for the workplace and classroom. We will use membership revenues to support the virtual events, disseminate work-family scholarship, prepare the 2022 in-person conference, and support the next generation of work-family scholars.

As a member, the WFRN will work to advance your interests. Some of the benefits of membership include:

  • Engagement with the international community of work-family scholars and practitioners
  • Free admission to virtual events
  • Weekly news and events feed to your email
  • Updates on the latest publications in work-family via the Research Feed
  • Opportunity to join and lead knowledge communities and special interest groups
  • Opportunity to lead WFRN initiatives, including new positions as content development leaders
  • Opportunity to join our Experts Panel, increasing your visibility, prospects for media engagement, collaboration and consultation

Perhaps the most important reason to become a member is the satisfaction of supporting high quality employment, access to care, and effective social policies.

Please take a few moments to visit the WFRN’s new website and our membership page.  We would be delighted to have you join our efforts in 2021 by joining our membership!
