Work-life balance conference
A conference taking place this week is set to see a range of diversity issues being discussed.
'Work-life balance needs and solutions: A focus on diversity and difference' is being hosted on Friday 10 June by the Division of Occupational Psychology's Work-Life Balance Working Group at the Society office, 30 Tabernacle Street, London.
Dr Ellen Ernst Kossek, University Distinguished Professor at Michigan State University, has been confirmed as the keynote speaker at the event, while papers including 'What about me? Examining the Work-life Balance of gay, lesbian and single employees' by Richard MacKinnon of Talent Q and Dr Caroline Gatrell of Lancaster University's 'Work Life balance: working for fathers?' will also be presented.
Professor Gail Kinman, Co-Chair of the Work-Life Balance Working Group, said the conference will bring together "Psychologists including academics and practitioners in the fields of Occupational and Organisational Psychology and Human Resource Management who advocate a more inclusive approach to enhance the wellbeing of a wider range of employees".

Dr Lea Brindle, Chartered Occupational Psychologist, recently said people could improve their mental wellbeing through T'ai chi, due to its meditative aspects.
