Most professional women step off the career track at some point in their lives whether it be to raise children, care for elderly parents, or to manage other life experiences.

  • What off ramps have you taken?
  • How have off ramps impacted your career?
  • Has it been difficult to get back on the career track?

Please take this survey to explore the off ramps taken by women in public relations roles in our area. It is based on a Harvard Business Review report titled “The Hidden Brain Drain: Off-Ramps and On-Ramps in Women’s Careers.”
