“Work-life balance” is a very important topic to her. In her presentation, Prof. Strobel will report findings from studies and talk about her own experiences from academic and private life concerning the topic of work-life balance. Based on current studies, her work as a mentor, and her role in research training groups of two collaborative research centres, she will present factors that turned out to be essential for a successful work-life balance as well as subjective and objective challenges that can stand in the way of such a balance. Her presentation is thought as an impulse talk and starting point for discussion with and questions from the audience.
