Retreat Reinvent Recharge is collaborating with international universities and other institutions to conduct further research about the transition of women.
While women have a plethora of career opportunities, inequity remains. Professional women lag behind men throughout their careers, and if they take career breaks, the opportunities to reenter at the same level are sparse.
Women in leadership roles face prejudices that their male counterparts do not. And as their careers progress, they typically lag further behind men, especially when they face family pulls and workplace pushes. When faced with the biology of reproduction, internal pressures within marriage, and aging parents, women often slow down their careers, while men’s careers accelerate. When women don't receive the same opportunities as their male counterparts, they can become frustrated, and those who can afford to often quit or opt-out. Other high-achieving professional women report being shutout. And when many women are ready to reenter the workforce, they often find it difficult to do so.
In addition to challenges women experience during professional and personal transitions, we're also exploring the change in identity that accompanies transition.
