The Caltech & STEM community are invited to a NEW monthly space for discussion and skill-building for those who are exploring their various identities within the contexts of being in married/partnered and/or parenting relationships.

PARENTING!
Come join us to talk about all facets of parenting- from communicating with your children, working while parenting, navigating partnerships in parenting, and a whole lot more!
Share your own experiences and let's discuss how we
navigate our roles and responsibilities as parents!

Moderated by:
