Comillas hosts the 1st Conference on “Conciliation and Joint Responsibility”
As was made evident at the Comillas Alumni Annual Meeting, reconciliation of family and professional life is a fundamental issue for Comillas. "Reconciling these is in the DNA of Comillas", stated the Rector, Julio L. Martínez, SJ, during the inauguration of the 1st Conference on Conciliation and Joint Responsibility: Work and Family, held at the university. "In the Encyclical Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis asks for a more co-responsible family and greater commitment from administrations and companies in favor of reconciling family life and work," said the Rector. "We are a family-responsible university as reconciliation of family and work, and co-responsibility, are two of the main lines of research at this institution, as evidenced by the existence of the Institute for the Family, created in 1984, and the Chair for Economic and Business Ethics”.
