Working together for women’s careers

Having met and got to know each other over a number of years Penny Dick a Professor of Organizational Psychology at Sheffield University Management School and Emma & Jenny from Women to Work found they had a common belief that there is a mismatch between what is commonly understood as career success versus how women see personal and professional success….

They all came together with this shared passion and a desire to make a difference…..

Penny applied and obtained some funding from the British Academy/Leverhulme Small Grants competition to conduct research and a plan was put in place with research starting in 2019.

Penny attended and interviewed a number of women who had attended Women to Work’s Work Life Discovery Coaching Workshop to delve deeply into the women’s own understandings of their ‘career’ and work and life and gain valuable insight that is the basis for the research findings.

We are now delighted to be sharing all the research and thinking in a summary document – Starting the conversation ….. having an impact and making a difference – Women’s careers: Beyond organizational boundaries – a practical, insightful and stirring document that we hope will drive action, change and enable the readers to have real and positive impact…..
