Women Pursuing Careers in Trades and Construction
Ericksen, Julia A.; Schultheiss, Donna E. Palladino
Journal of Career Development, v36 n1 p68-89 2009
The purpose of this article is to review the extant literature on women in skilled trades and construction to identify specific gaps in our knowledge of the career development processes and needs of this understudied and underserved population. Our aim is to stimulate the interest of scholars and their engagement in research and practice relevant to noncollege women with interests in these occupations. Such research is needed to guide successful career interventions, inform public policy, and promote equal opportunity for women in the pursuit of their careers.
