Focused on the personal aspects of re-entry into regular academic life, the speakers will discuss University plans to address and evaluate gender disparities resulting from the pandemic, practical advice on restarting research disrupted by the crisis, and combatting burnout to prepare for a return to campus, in-person teaching, and regular academic life. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A.
