My paper with Mariska van der Horst, who was a post doc here at Kent last year, has been nominated in the long list for the 2019 Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research

The article was chosen as the top 15 articles among over 2500 articles published in 2018 in 83 leading English-language journals from around the world  reviewed by a committee of over 60 leading scholars in work family research.

Chung, H., & Van der Horst, M. (2018). Women’s employment patterns after childbirth and the perceived access to and use of flexitime and teleworking. Human Relations71(1), 47-72.  

The article also received a lot of media attention - e.g. in this New York Times article and has also helped develop flexible working policies in the EU and UK - for example, this action note by the Government Equalities Office published earlier this year.
