Bowling Green State work-life scholar and researcher speaks at first Quality of Life lecture



LSU SLHRD welcomed work-life scholar and researcher Dr. Russell Matthews, an associate professor at Bowling Green State University, to campus for the first LSU CHSE Quality of Life lecture, November 17.

Dr. Matthews spoke on unlocking the scientific secrets to maintaining the work-life balance. With more than ten years of practical experience consulting with regional and national organizations, city municipalities, and various government agencies, Dr. Matthews works with organizational stakeholders to identify and implement solutions in order to make meaningful contributions to improve employee quality of life.

Attendees, which included faculty, staff and students, received tailored information on how to modify and improve personal balance, hands-on self-assessment of levels of imbalance and overload, and approaches on how to effectively balance school, work, friends, and family.

Two audience members at this standing-room only event received copies of Dr. Matthew's newly released book, Research and Perspectives on Motherhood Transitions to the Workplace, as door prizes.

Special thanks to the LSU CHSE for making the event possible, and to the LSU Office of Diversity, Staff Senate, SLHRD, International Studies, and Woman's and Gender Studies for helping to host the event
