The ELEMENTS office at Goethe University’s Riedberg Campus in Frankfurt is offering a helping hand to parents on campus. Earlier this year, we have introduced the “KidsBox“, a versatile piece of furniture. This mobile box transforms into a shelf, table, and stool and contains childcare essentials, such as diapers, toys, and a travel bed. This initiative is designed to assist parents who need to bring their kids to the office, making it easier for them to balance work and childcare responsibilities. It’s a step towards a more family-friendly and inclusive work environment.
To access the KidsBox, all members of the Physics department can simply request it through the ELEMENTS office via e-mail.
We are actively exploring the possibility of introducing a similar offering for our members in Darmstadt once the renovations at the Institute for Nuclear Physics are completed.
