Dealing with Work-Life Issues in the Workplace: Standing Still is Not an Option

2004 Don Wood Lecture Series

Dr. Linda Duxbury, Sprott School of Business, Carleton University
Publication date: September, 2004

The Don Wood Lecture in Industrial Relations was established by friends of W. Donald Wood to honour his outstanding contribution to Canadian industrial relations. Dr Wood was Director of the Industrial Relations Centre from 1960 to 1985, and the first Director of the School of Industrial Relations, established in 1983. The lecture brings to Queen's University distinguished individuals who have made an important contribution to industrial relations in Canada or other countries.

Dr. Linda Duxbury, a Professor at the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University, and Director of Research for the Carleton Centre for Research and Education on Women and Work, draws on her extensive research to show how organizations are not creating the conditions employees need to balance their working lives with family and other responsibilities.
