Dr. Nora Bensahel, LTG David W. Barno, USA (Ret.), Katherine Kidder, and Kelley Sayler examine the career paths of professional women through the ranks of the U.S. military and private sector. In the report, the authors argue that women at all levels of the military and the private sector share a number of challenges related to retention and promotion, parenthood and family, compensation and negotiation, mentorship and career advancement, and workplace climate. These challenges need to be addressed in order for the military services and private sector employers to benefit from the full range of the nation's talent.
