Enhance your dual career services through shared resources, best practices, and links to dual career programs.
Dual career resources are key to advancing women in academia. A Stanford University survey of 30,000 professors showed women in the academy more often face the dual career issue than men, because 40 percent of tenure-track professors who are women are married to other academics, compared to only 34 percent of tenure-track professors who are men. Additionally, the outcomes of a dual career job search have long-term consequences, as they can directly affect employee success and quality of life.
