Work and Family Researchers Network
The new Work and Family Researchers Network (WFRN) is an international membership organization of interdisciplinary work and family researchers. The WFRN also welcomes the participation of policy makers and practitioners as it seeks to promote knowledge and understanding of work and family issues among the community of global stakeholders.
The WFRN facilitates virtual and face-to-face interaction among work and family researchers from a broad range of fields and engages the next generation of work and family scholars. As a global hub, we provide opportunities for information sharing and networking via our website, which includes the only open access work and family subject matter repository, the Work and Family Commons.
Your support will help to advance, promote, and preserve interdisciplinary work and family scholarship and move the field forward.
The Work and Family Researchers Network was formed in response to the need for a membership association of interdisciplinary work and family scholars. Unique among professional societies, the WFRN provides an online peer-community with tools to strengthen connections between the global audience interested in work and family.

Sloan Network Archive
The Work and Family Researchers Network carries on the legacy of the Sloan Work and Family Research Network. The Sloan Network was the premier online destination for work and family research for 14 years. Resources previously provided by the Sloan Work and Family Research Network are located in an Archive on the new site and available to you. One of the changes from the former Sloan Network to the WFRN is the transformation from a staff-driven enterprise to a member driven one.
