Families and Mobility: Geographical and Cultural challenges

Researchers in academia/industry are more likely to delay family planning. Thus, professional development is often in conflict with the strong desire for personal plans, including family planning and parenthood. There has been a positive movement towards equity of opportunity around family planning. However, recent studies show that attention is still needed to tackle existing problems, such as childcare costs and struggle of keeping a career in research. We will build upon the themes of Issues and Action to find equity, mapping different geographical/cultural challenges for mobile researchers. The event will cover some of the most critical problems and the possible strategies to address these issues through (i) building awareness and empowerment (ii) mapping different national approaches (iii) motivating changes in current employer policies

This task may be less grueling than expected if a systematic approach is taken. We will cover how to determine fiscal residency according to the amount of time spent in the United States during the fiscal year 2020, and how to identify the need to file a federal and/or state return. Tax Day in the USA is traditionally April 15, but in 2021 this deadline has been postponed to May 17 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
