Work life balance is a key issue in our society and many people take a break for family or health reasons. In the fast moving world of scientific research, highly qualified and skilled individuals who take a career break quickly find themselves lagging behind their peers, and when returning to work, they struggle to find research-based employment which fully utilises their knowledge and experience.
The aims of the Daphne Jackson Trust are:
- to enable women and men to return to research with confidence after a career break
- to maintain a talented STEM workforce by offering flexible fellowships
- to support equality and diversity in the workplace
- to develop partnerships that extend the reach and increase the impact of the work of the Trust
