Event Description:
Invisible Families, Invisible Conflicts: Examining The Added Layer of Work-Family Conflict For Employees With LGB Families

Kanter Lecture presents Dr. Katina Sawyer as she discusses her Kanter Nominated research which called attention to the overly restricted assumptions about “family” in prior WFC research, and seeks to serve as an impetus for aligning WFC research more fully with the complex realities of modern organizational life. For employees in same-sex relationships, work and family domains often conflict in unique ways that result in stress that is not experienced by those with heterosexual family structures. Challenging heteronormative assumptions of “family,” Dr. Sawyer and her colleagues examined the work-family conflict (WFC) experiences of employees with LGB families to develop new theory regarding the additional WFCs and associated family identity management behaviors and psychological strains faced by LGB employees who perceive their family identity to be stigmatized at work. The Kanter Lecture Series is free and open to the public.
