Women’s Careers

Women face a unique set of challenges while negotiating the patriarchal workplace. Many women have to navigate discrimination, biases, and workplace policies and practices that are skewed in favor of men. In most societies, women bare a disproportionate share of caregiving and household duties. And women frequently feel that starting a family could cost their careers dearly. While the traditional career trajectory resembles a ladder, women's careers often tend to resemble a spaghetti junction, teeming with on-ramps and off-ramps. You learn from every twist and turn as you navigate work, family, personal growth and community. The knowledge here can help you define your own path, wherever you want it to lead.
