Pamela Stone is a professor of Sociology at Hunter College, and an expert on women in the workplace. She has written widely on such topics as the gender wage gap, pay equity, and the work-family interface.
When women leave the workforce to raise children, they often find that picking up their career where they left off is tough. Pamela Stone, professor of sociology at Hunter College and The Graduate Center, City University of New York, joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the struggles of highly-educated, well-connected women with résumé gaps. Her new book – written with Meg Lovejoy – is called “Opting Back In: What Really Happens When Mothers Go Back to Work.”
Amy and Sheryl are in a giddy mood this week, which is a nice change of pace!They are happy because Pamela Stone, author Opting Out? Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home, is the guest on the podcast, and she'll be speaking in Durham, NC in person next week.  So if you are in the area, we hope you'll register for the Carolina Parent Women@Work Breakfast on September 17, and join us to form a Mojo table!
