Our Expertise

The Center for Women and Work has four main areas of expertise which inform and guide its efforts: 

Our expertise in education and career development focuses on the foundations that lead to women’s advancement in the workforce, including formal and informal education and training programs and the development and implementation of policy in our education and workforce systems.  

Our expertise in women’s leadership and advancement focuses on the needs of professional working women by studying workplace culture and women’s leadership, conducting research, and sponsoring educational programs for students and experienced professionals. 

Our expertise on working families focuses on improving workplace programs and policies which reflect the contemporary lives of all families so workers can be both productive employees and responsible family members. 

Lastly, our expertise on women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) includes a research and practice agenda, developed through an intersectional lens, that drives institutions and governments toward more equitable policies and practices which address the growing concern over gender disparities in the STEM workforce.
