Governance and Support

Governance

The Centre''s research is based on affiliated faculty leading research programs, additional faculty and research associates working as collaborators on specific projects, a part-time secretary and several managers who coordinate research. Many other researchers and community partners are involved locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.

Those leading research themes meet once per year to identify potential future directions for Centre research and activities. The executive director reports to the Centre Management Committee which meets twice per year or as required.

Support

The work of the Centre is funded through public, private and foundation grants for specific research and other projects, as well as through the University of Guelph. Donations to support projects at the Centre for Families, Work and Well-being provide many benefits to students and scholars and to the community at large. Most of the Centre's work has direct applicability to Canadian workplaces, service providers or policy makers.

However, mothers are also as diverse as we can imagine - younger or older, parenting alone or with a partner, employed or not, and from all races, cultures, backgrounds, and family structures (adoptive, blended, nuclear, etc.). We sometimes forget that some mothers also live with a disability or chronic health condition that can make mothering no less rewarding, but even more challenging. read more...
