The Women's Life-Paths Study: Role-Innovation over Fourteen Years. Symposium Papers.
Tangri, Sandra S.; And Others
Four symposium papers report the results of a longitudinal study of career development and life changes for a sample of 1,967 female college graduates in the Michigan Student Study who were studied in 1967, 1970 and 1981. The first of the papers, entitled "Where Are They Now? Career Outcomes for the Original Role-Innovators," by Sandra S. Tangri, compares role innovators, traditionals, and moderates on educational and employment experiences, family formation, mentoring, aspirations, and role conflict. The second paper, "Predicting Role-Innovation Fourteen Years after College," by Sandra S. Tangri and Josephine Ruggiero, describes predictors of the paths taken by the three groups, including education and employment, family formation, motivation and commitment, and mentoring. The third paper, "Emotional Adaptation and Changes in Employment," by Jan L. Hitchcock, takes a life change perspective on subjects' employment experiences and examines the relationship between their emotional orientation and recency of last change of employment. The fourth paper, "Role Innovative Goals: Achievement and Change," by Sharon Rae Jenkins, focuses on continuity between 1967 plans and 1981 achievements, examining the complex influences on family and career goals.
