Below are some of my favorite resources that pertain to the broad topic of career, women and work, and work-life balance. I am constantly learning about and adding more amazing websites, tools, people, articles, and books. If you have any resources that have been especially helpful to you, please share these with me! It is my goal to create a comprehensive list of Women and Work related information, so I need your help. Thank you in advance!
