Grad Talk: Becoming a Parent during Grad School (Panel)

When: November 5, 12-2 pm
Where: Cumberland Room, Centre for International Experience, 33 St. George Street

Free; Registration required.

University of Toronto students and their partners are welcome. Lunch will be provided.

Many students debate whether they should have a baby in graduate school or wait until their lives and careers are more established. This session will help you make a more informed decision about what it means to start a family during grad school, including:

  • A panel discussion featuring a faculty member and graduate students who are raising children; you will be able to hear firsthand about their experiences for integrating studies and careers with raising children
  • Hear about programs and resources available for students who are starting a family: University and Government leave policies; funding options for pregnancy/parental leave; and, resources for new parents
  • Self-assessment — you will have an opportunity to explore your own readiness to start a family.

Presented by the Family Care Office, the School of Graduate Studies, and the Gradlife Program.
