A note from Carol:
Since my own professional career spanned a range of territories from community organizing in the South Bronx, through a Yale Graduate School PhD, to authoring an MIT Press book and numerous articles, to high level management positions in three Corporate 500 companies, I am interested in how we make career and life choices at different life stages, under challenging life circumstances. As a parent of two adult daughters with active careers and families I remain deeply committed to facilitating the balance between career and family.
