With the help of the ForbesWoman community, Forbes has searched the Web for the most dynamic, inspiring, and helpful websites for women. Included in this list is the Boston College Alfred P. Sloan Work and Family Research Network website.
The Sloan Work and Family Research Network is widely recognized as the premier online destination for current, credible, and comprehensive research and information on work and family issues. The site serves a global community of academics, workplace practitioners, and state public policy makers and features multidisciplinary, credible teaching resources, evidence-based information on cutting-edge workforce issues, talent management, and the impact of work and family issues on business outcomes and unbiased policy data about work and family legislation. Judi Casey, MSW, is currently the Principal Investigator and Director of the Network and GSSW Associate Professor, Marcie Pitt-Catsouphes, Ph.D. is the founder of the Network.
"The Sloan Network is thrilled to be included as a top website for women. We hope that the site will be useful to anyone attempting to manage their work and family lives which in my opinion, includes just about everyone -- students graduating from college or going on to a graduate degree, families caring for children and elders or older workers phasing out of the workplace."
