Navigating a Woman’s Career in PR: On Ramps & Off Ramps


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.

At Canadian Women in PR, an organization that I’m a member of and sit on the Advisory Council, we’re asking our colleagues to take a few minutes to complete a survey. Our goals are to explore the off ramps taken by women in public relations roles in our area. It is based on a Harvard Business Review report entitled “The Hidden Brain Drain: Off-Ramps and On-Ramps in Women’s Careers.

Questions include: What off ramps have you taken? How have off ramps impacted your career? Has it been difficult to get back on the career track? Survey results are strictly confidential.

Please take a few minutes to participate. The results will be used to facilitate a solutions-based discussion at the Canadian Women in Public Relations event on September 27th at the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel.
