Summary
PROVIDES TANGIBLE AND PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR STUCK WOMEN - Women & Transition is unique in that it offers a provocative new data driven perspective on the complex issue of women's transition. Women can encounter transition at 29 or 49 or 69. Transitions can be triggered by a myriad of events, many related to the broad and celebrated roles women play in society. Common transition triggers include: career choices; changes in relationships; parenting; prolonged periods of non-employment; divorce; retirement; changes in health status; elder care responsibilities; death of a loved one; unexpected job loss; empty nests; and countless other life events. Because of these broad and diverse roles women experience transition with greater frequency than their male peers.ORIGINAL RESEARCH - Includes Hundreds of Interviews with Women Who Have Experienced Transition: In Women & Transition Rossetti embraces the actual voices of countless women to reveal a rich data set on a topic that requires immediate attention. The author has coupled this primary research with her own experience. She's developed and validated practical models. In the end Women & Transition will engage women in a discussion on the feelings associated with transition and a practical step by step guide to getting started. The book addresses transition skills that can catapult forward an individual woman's progress while on a macro basis we continue to address the often slower but nonetheless critical issues of governmental, organizational, societal and cultural change. WOMEN IN TRANSITION IN THE NEWS - The front page of The New York Times Continuing Education section on March 18th reads: Back in the Game and focuses on women returning to work after staying home to raise a family. The article cites the statistic that 89% of women who voluntarily leave the workforce want to come back and only 30% are able to find a job after being gone for only 2 1/2 years. Articles such as these regularly appear in the media and focus on how many women are struggling with the idea of work/career/family/lifestyle. This author has developed a framework to help women refocus on career desires and the transitions that are so difficult in life --
