On 12 August 2013, Dr Blackmon and Professor Rudy will deliver a presentation at the Academy of Management alongside scholars from Cornell University, the University of Minnesota, and Simon Fraser University in a session on “Work-Life Conflict and Flexible Workplaces.” Other topics include the ways that partners in dual-career couples react to work-family conflict, the effects of flexible work practices on parents’ career success, and what happens when “balance” means working all of the time. Blackmon and Rudy’s presentation, based on their paper, “’and you think you have it all mapped out: Women Rhodes Scholars’ Work-Life Identity Narratives,” will take place from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the WDW Dolphin Resort in Orlando.
