Taking a career break is a conflicted and risky decision for high-achieving professional women. Yet many do so, usually planning, even as they quit, to return to work eventually. But can they? And if so, how? In Opting Back In, Pamela Stone and Meg Lovejoy revisit women first interviewed a decade earlier in Stone’s book Opting Out? Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home to answer these questions. In frank and intimate accounts, women lay bare the dilemmas they face upon reentry. Most succeed but not by returning to their former high-paying, still family-inhospitable jobs. Instead, women strike out in new directions, finding personally gratifying but lower-paid jobs in the gig economy or predominantly female nonprofit sector. Opting Back In uncovers a paradox of privilege by which the very women best positioned to achieve leadership and close gender gaps use strategies to resume their careers that inadvertently reinforce gender inequality. The authors advocate gender equitable policies that will allow women—and all parents—to combine the intense demands of work and family life in the twenty-first century.

Like those in any field becoming rapidly professionalized, fund raisers want to know more about their jobs so that they can plan their careers more proactively and effectively, as well as respond to increasing calls for accountability in nonprofit organizations. This book is one of the first to help fund raisers examine their career environment and make smarter choices about their careers. Fund Raisers offers an overview of fund raisers--their educational and career backgrounds, their values and concerns, and the challenges and rewards they experience in their work. Based on a three-year national study that included a survey of over 1,700 professional fund raisers and eighty-two personal interviews, it presents a comprehensive, detailed picture of contemporary fund raisers at all levels of professional achievement. The authors examine the critical issues facing the field, including: *The levels of compensation and overall compensation practices *Factors involved in entering and advancing in the field *The status of women and minorities in fund raising *The scope, impact, and reasons for turnover in the field *Perceptions of fund raisers from both inside and outside the field *Issues of accountability, ethical practice, licensing, and regulation Throughout the book, information from the survey and interviews provides the basis for discussion of these critical issues and the resulting conclusions and recommendations. The authors also include extensive case studies of many of the fund raisers interviewed in their research, who describe--in their own words--their own career paths, the satisfactions and challenges of working in fund raising, and their perceptions of the field's strengths and areas in need of improvement.
