It's "My" Life! Science Career Workshop.
Heller, Barbara R.; And Others
The science career workshop was targeted at freshman and sophomore women enrolled in public and private two- and four-year colleges and universities in the New York City area. The central theme of the workshop was that career choice represents a significant personal decision and needs to be based on sound information about the self, the external world, and their interrelationships. Relying on women scientists as panelists and session leaders, the workshop exposed students to career and lifestyle options and information about the interests, skills, abilities, and background preparation generally required for scientific careers. This report describes the activities that led up to the workshop, the workshop components and participant assessment of them, and the results and recommendations for the future. (Author/BB)
