Anne E Kaduk

My dissertation examines how women’s reasons for leaving the labor force affect whether they ever return, after how long, and how their post-return jobs are different than the ones they held before they left the labor force. Other current research as part of the Work, Family & Health Network considers workplace flexibility in an IT workforce – which employees work from home (telecommute) or have variable work schedules (flextime), how much control do they feel over such work practices, and how does a workplace initiative change those relationships. My current work is linked to social sustainability and past (and hopefully future) projects also consider environmental sustainability.
