Bringing Your Daughter to Work

A colleague and I commiserated about the dual burden of bringing our families to conferences with us. The purpose of a conference is to meet with your colleagues. But business travel takes precious time away from family--unless you bring your family along. Then we are torn between wanting to be with both colleagues and family, but having to choose.

Try getting ready for a business meeting and a family trip at the same time.

So why do it at all? Because the younger scientists are watching. Because our daughters are watching.
