The Live Work Well Research Centre is launching a webinar series entitled “From the Margins: Communities Respond to COVID-19”, where we will elevate perspectives often excluded from dominant discussions of COVID-19. The panelists will discuss what are the specific challenges that their communities and organizations are facing due to COVID-19 and the social, political, and economic conditions underlying these challenges.
The 5th biennial conference of the WFRN is expected to draw more than 700 researchers, practitioners, and stakeholders with work-family interests. The submission portal for sessions and presentations opens in late July 2019. The submission deadline is November 1, 2019. More details will be available soon.

Most accessibility barriers in organizations arise from issues related to policy, technology and awareness. How can organizations encourage their staff to address these dimensions of accessibility in an integrated, holistic way? The conference organizing committee invites you to share your thoughts on these or other social, economic or political drivers that are key to transforming the accessible landscape of Ontario by 2025. Submission deadline: January 26, 2020
