Creating a life : professional women and the quest for children by Sylvia Ann Hewlett ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sylvia Ann Hewlett, the acclaimed author of When the Bough Breaks: The Cost of Neglecting Our Children, tackles one of the most wrenching challenges for women today - creating rich multidimensional lives that contain both career and children." "Almost half of all professional women are childless at age forty. The more a woman succeeds in her career, the less likely it is that she will have a partner or a baby. For men the opposite is true: the more successful a man is professionally, the more likely it is that he will be married with children." "Hewlett brings to the book her substantial expertise as a policy analyst and her own difficult experiences of pregnancy and motherhood. Combining poignant and compelling portraits of women's lives with a groundbreaking survey commissioned specifically for this book, she gives voice to women's hopes and anguish and unearths stunning new information. For example, 42 percent of women in corporate America are childless at age forty (compared to 25 percent of men), but only 14 percent planned to be. Hewlett's research reveals a host of circumstances that have conspired to produce brutal trade-offs in the lives of professional women: America's long-hours corporate culture, a stubbornly traditional division of labor at home, and a fertility industry that lulls women into a false sense that they can get pregnant deep into middle age."--BOOK JACKET

Mentors can build your self-esteem and provide a sounding board--but they're not your ticket to the top. If you're interested in fast-tracking your career, what you need is a sponsor--a senior-level champion who believes in your potential and is willing to advocate for you as you pursue that next raise or promotion

The hidden brain drain : off-ramps and on-ramps in women's careers by Sylvia Ann Hewlett ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Corporations have done a dismal job of retaining female talent. Indeed, they make it very easy for women to depart. When women take a temporary leave of absence to have children or deal with other personal matters, they find it difficult to return to work and contribute as they had previously. In essence, corporations provide women with many career off-ramps, but provide them with few on-ramps. This problem bodes badly for CEOs and top managers who view human resources as a critical asset. This research report, based on an extensive study by the Center for Work-Life Policy, a nonprofit research firm in New York City, provides the first comprehensive view of the forces behind the ongoing exodus of talented women from the workforce. The study identifies the reasons why women lose much of their earning power when they "off-ramp" and outlines the limited possibilities for finding on-ramps, or reentry points, for those wishing to re-enter. With in-depth case studies and dozens of charts and tables accompanied by insightful interpretations of the data, the report constitutes one of the most detailed looks at the hidden brain drain that will prevent companies from effectively competing in the incipient war for talent."--Publisher
