Family-Friendly University Policies in Germany and the USA
- Presentation and discussion at Goethe University Frankfurt

There is a lot of discussion in the media and in university administration
about family-friendliness of universities. These discussions are taking
place on both sides of the Atlantic, and have been for years. In my talk,
I present a 20-year overview of the ways Americans are measuring the
family-friendliness of their universities, and with what results.
Ironically, despite the higher rates of women in science in the USA
compared to Germany, and the higher rates of childbirth to academics in
the USA compared to Germany, Germans have an enormous family-friendly
policy advantage over Americans. We'll discuss what that irony is and what
its causes may be.
The presentation is targeted at an audience of practitioners and scientists
in the domain of human resource management and related fields.
The event is supported by the Center for Leadership and Behavior in Organizations and free of charge.
