Emory Recognizes National Work & Family Month

By: Mary Ellen Nessmith, MPA

October 2016

The month of October is designated by the U.S. government as National Work & Family Month. Emory University has come a long way since 2008 when it first announced its commitment to work-life by introduction of the Emory WorkLife Resource Center. In recognizing National Work & Family Month, Emory would like to remind our faculty and staff of the nationally recognized work-life programming available to them today to help them manage their work and personal responsibilities.
