Women & Work – Educated Opt-Outers

motherhood

They are smart, highly educated and can go head to head with any man in the workplace. Young women today have career opportunities available to them that years ago were unattainable. However, some young women are choosing to opt-out of the “go-hard” career path to be more available to their children. One of those women is Gabrielle Brett, Regina’s daughter!

On this edition of The Regina Brett Show, Gabrielle Brett joins her mom Regina to explore the pros and cons of educated women sacrificing career for family.

Plus, professor and author Pamela Stone shares her research on why women are really opting
out of careers and how they can opt back in when ready.

 

Guests on this show:

    Pamela Stone, Professor at Hunter College
