EAU CLAIRE — All University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire faculty and staff are invited to attend an interactive videoconference that will focus on integrating work and personal time.

The presentation is slated for noon-1 p.m. March 8 in OL 1132. The free videoconference will include faculty and staff attending at videoconference sites throughout the UW System. No registration is required.

The session will feature Ellen Bravo, UW-Milwaukee professor and former executive director of 9to5, the National Association of Working Women, who will give a presentation titled "Tear Down the Maternal Wall by Redesigning the Building." Her presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

"Instead of focusing on a job-home balancing act, we must tie the integration of work and personal life to redesigning the way work is done and how success is defined," Bravo said.

Bravo teaches a class on family friendly workplaces and served on the Congressional Commission on Leave to evaluate the impact of the Family and Medical Leave Act. She's author of "The Job/Family Challenge: A 9to5 Guide (Not for Women Only)" and "Quality Part-Time Options in Wisconsin." And she's the co-author of "Keeping Jobs and Raising Families in Low-Income America: It Just Doesn’t Work."

Sponsors include the UW-Extension Status of Women Committee, UW System Women and Science Program, UW System Women's Studies Consortium and UW Colleges.

Details about the video conference are available on the UW-Extension Web site.
