Career Transitions

YaleWomen and the Yale Alumni Association (Careers, Life, and Yale) partnered for a webinar on a topic relevant to so many alums: career transitions.

This webinar featured four Yale women alums sharing their experiences with career transition due to:

- job loss
- re-entering the workforce after taking time off to raise children
- a desire to reinvent oneself and switch careers entirely

Two career coaches then provided further insight and led a Q&A to give participants an opportunity to actively engage in the conversation. Participants also received a follow-up email with a list of resources for their own career transitions.

This webinar will examine how language shapes perceptions. The word choices we make – how we describe success, the words we use to label failure, the way a promotion is explained – demonstrate what we implicitly value. Sometimes our word choices are deliberate, but oftentimes our word choices are unintentional. In these instances, stereotypes about gender, ethnicity, and other characteristics may inadvertently influence the words we choose in ways that can advantage some or disadvantage others on our team.

Carolyn Mazure is the Norma Weinberg Spungen and Joan Lebson Bildner Professor in Women’s Health and Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology at Yale. Dr. Mazure came to Yale for her fellowship training after completing graduate school and three years at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Immediately following her postgraduate training, she was invited to join the Yale faculty. Dr. Mazure’s contributions in women’s health began with her own internationally recognized research in the field of depression. Understanding the value of uncovering gender differences in the field of depression, combined with recognizing that such data are sorely lacking across many fields of biomedical research, Dr. Mazure designed and launched Women’s Health Research at Yale, the university’s interdisciplinary research center on health and gender.
