Work-Life forum online
President Jim Wagner commissioned the Work-Life Initiative task force as part of the cross-cutting strategic theme, creating community and engaging society.

The task force, charged to consider ways to enhance the work, health and well-being and family life within Emory’s academic setting, is made up of faculty, staff and students. The task force has developed an online forum for the wider Emory community to provide feedback on work-life issues.

The forum requires an Emory sign-in and password and allows users to post and read comments. For more information about the forum, visit www.admin.emory.edu/StrategicPlan/WorkLife/.
