Career Development of Women in Academia: Traversing the Leaky Pipeline
Gasser, Courtney E.; Shaffer, Katharine S.
Professional Counselor, v4 n4 p332-352 2014
Women's experiences in academia are laden with a fundamental set of issues pertaining to gender inequalities. A model reflecting women's career development and experiences around their academic pipeline (or career in academia) is presented. This model further conveys a new perspective on the experiences of women academicians before, during and after their faculty appointments and can help in career counseling. Specifically, this model provides career counselors with a framework to conceptualize the concerns of women clients who work in academic environments. Other implications for career counseling as well as limitations and future directions also are discussed.
