“Mr and Mrs Smith”

Dual Career Planning workshop


We warmly invite you to the Dual Career Planning workshop. The event will start with a 20-30 minute talk by Laura Langner (DPhil on Dual Career Planning), followed by a panel discussion with couples making dual careers work. The workshop will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.

The title “Mr and Mrs Smith” relates to the movie title. OxFEST would like to stress that we welcome relationships of all gender configurations and the management of dual careers will be discussed in a non-gendered way! We look forward to seeing you!

All are welcome! The event is free for OxFEST members, £2 for non-members or £5 for a lifetime membership available on the door; lifetime membership guarantees a free entry to all future OxFEST events.

Join us in a discussion on how to be a ‘power couple!’
