"You are a woman pursuing a successful career in engineering, science, or technology, and you are prepared to work hard. But you must also work "smart." Becoming Leaders is about working smart - and about making the choices that are right for you, your talents, and your life, wherever you are in your career." "Williams and Emerson consulted research on a wide range of topics of interest to women in different stages of their careers. They present important, timely information alongside practical tips. Chapters can be read in any order, with road maps for students, career women, faculty, and managers."--BOOK JACKET.
