The Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN) invites submissions for the 2016 Conference, Careers, Care, and Life-Course “Fit:” Implications for Health, Equality, and Policy, to be held June 23-25, 2016 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C. The Work and Family Researchers Network is an international membership organization of interdisciplinary work and family researchers. We seek fresh and innovative scientific contributions on work and family issues from investigators in diverse disciplines. We value all disciplinary perspectives on the issues, including, but not limited to, anthropology, business and management, economics, family studies, gender studies, history, political science, philosophy, psychology, public health, social work, sociology, and related fields. The voices of all stakeholders are needed to understand and address work and family issues to advance knowledge and practice. We also encourage policy advocates, policy makers, and work-life practitioners to submit evidence-based contributions. Continuing at the 2016 conference will be a practitioner “track” in an effort to encourage practitioner and policy-oriented submissions and promotion of researcher and practitioner/policy maker collaboration. There will also be a pre-conference Congressional briefing and meetings of Early Career Fellows, WFRN committees, WFRN Special Interest Groups (SIGs), and member volunteers on June 22.
