November Event : Weighing Your Options: The Potential Impacts of Different Work Arrangements for Women
Tough economic times have a significant impact on our connection to work and work arrangements (e.g., full-time, part-time, contract). With the understanding that there is no “one size fits all” approach to work, the presentation will explore different work arrangements and the positive and negative impacts on both career trajectory and work-life balance. GeoWomen, in this opportunity will host a presentation by Rachael Pettigrew, PhD – Assistant Professor at the Bissett School of Business. The presentation will address the unique professional challenges faced by women in male-dominated industries.
Rachael Noelle Pettigrew, PhD, lives in Calgary and, after 12 years at the University of Manitoba, is now an Assistant Professor in Bissett School of Business at Mount Royal University. In addition to being an experienced instructor and presenter (and mother of 2), Rachael is an active researcher. Her research follows two streams. Her primary research focuses on the work-life interface, but with specific interest in organizational culture, gender in the workplace, and family-supportive policies. Her secondary research stream involves workplace diversity and the role of the employer in newcomer settlement experience.
