Women's Careers: Pathways and Pitfalls


Women's Careers explores contexts and strategies that advance or hinder women's career development. It brings readers up-to-date on the intersection of the cross-disciplinary fields of career development, women's studies, and human resources. The applied focus and broad range of topics covered will appeal to scholars and professionals in these fields. Women's Careers examines four key topic areas: an introduction to current issues and research; planning and preparation, including insights into topics such as mentors' roles, cultural differences, women and leadership, and career versus family conflicts; challenges in the work environment for women entrepreneurs and supervisors; and affirmative action and sexual harassment.
