Looking for participants: women with PhDs who have taken "career break"

Do you know a woman in science or engineering who has taken a career break
from her academic position?

The NSF-ADVANCE program at George Washington University is doing a study of women in career breaks, whether voluntary or not, to understand the pipeline of women professors in science and engineering we are conducting a NSF-sponsored survey on women in career breaks. They are interested in women who have completed their PhD or DSc, have been employed in an academic setting and were, or have been, in a career break for less than five years. They are seeking to interview such women to help us determine better ways for individuals who have been in career breaks to be reintegrated into the academic pipeline. If you are someone who fits this profile or know of someone who does, please contact Dean Rachelle Heller at sheller@gwu.edu to set up an interview.
