Dual Career Panel Professionals and academicians who are part of dual career families face additional challenges. This panel will address this via interactive discussions with the audience. The following questions will be used to structure the panel discussion. * What are your biggest challenges on a daily basis and what is your advice for balancing two careers? * Were you part of any special recruiting or hiring due to your dual career status? Subsequently, were there any trailing spousal issues? * Did you encounter any challenges during the job search process? Did you ever have to work in separate locations to meet both of your career aspirations? * How do you balance professional obligations such as conferences with your partner? * Were you and your partner at the same (or different) stages in your careers? What challenges arose with this? * Did you and your partner encounter any challenges with having children? * Did tenure / promotion related timing or decisions impact your professional progression? * Have you or your partner ever taken a sabbatical to another location and how did you manage this? * Did administrative opportunities arise for you or your partner and were these a challenge? For all topics, panelist will provide insight from their own experiences as well as offer comments on effective practices they have observed.
