Coffee Chats

Coffee Chats are informal, hybrid gatherings for UofL employees who who identify as a parent or guardian and want to connect with others who juggle work and parenting. We meet on the second Friday of each month at 2 PM. Check-out our in-person schedule.

Connect Virtually

Posts  We encourage you to utilize the General channel in the Team to post a question, announcement, or other discussion item.
Notebook  We are using the PLC Notebook tool to share information and resources. Please review and add to the different notebook tabs to share your ideas and expertise. 
Sub-Channels We've also created sub-channels for different age groups: Expecting Parentings, Pre-K, Middle School, High School, and Young Adult.  if you have questions or suggestions for other channels that should be added.
Tips for Teams  -- When posting, you may want to use “@parenting” so all members are notified and can respond.

Stay tuned! We are working on our event schedule for 2023-24, which include Learning Cafes on school choice (fall) and college navigation (Spring). We promote connection through in person and virtual opportunities. 

Virtual Coffee Chat

After many years of hosting an ongoing virtual Coffee Chat on Teams, we've decided to close this chat and move communications to our MS Team -- Parenting Network. Everyone who has been part of the Coffee Chat has been added to the Team. How to leave the Coffee Chat: Click on the “people icon” in the top right corner of the chat, and choose “Leave” to remove yourself from the chat. Or you could highlight “Coffee Chat” in your list of chats, click on the 3 dots to the right, and click leave.
