Interview with Professor Peter Donnelly

The Nuffield Department of Medicine recognises the challenge of balancing work-life commitments and encourages staff to make use of the range of University services and facilities to support them with this.

Dr Jenny Taylor interviews Professor Peter Donnelly about how the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics encourages its employees to have a better work-life balance. They discuss the initiatives taken by the Centre including: inclusive scheduling of events, mentoring schemes and financial support for women returning from maternity leave.
