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. Part I presents an introduction to current issues and research. Part II discusses planning and preparation and includes insights into topics such as mentors' roles, cultural differences, women and leadership, and career versus family conflicts. Part III investigates challenges in the work environment for women entrepreneurs and supervisors, and discusses affirmative action and sexual harassment. Each chapter opens with a preview that places the material in the author's personal experience.
