Study of Asian American Women Work/Family Balance

I am an assistant professor of Women's Studies at the University of
Massachusetts, Amherst, and am conducting a study on how Asian
American women balance work and family responsibilities. If you or someone
you know
would be available to participate in survey for this study, it would
greatly contribute to understanding the challenges and concerns of
this understudied group of women and their mothering and work

The study is supported by an American Association of University Women
Postdoctoral American Fellowship, a grant from the Institute of Asian
American Studies at UMASS Boston and a research leave from UMASS
The survey will be completely confidential.

Unfortunately, I cannot offer any remuneration, other than the
satisfaction of knowing that your participation will potentially help
to raise awareness and facilitate workplace practices and policy
initiatives to better serve
Asian American working families. In addition, you may find the
itself enjoyable and useful for gaining a deeper understanding of your
own experiences and how they compare to other Asian American women.

At the end of the survey, you can enter your name into a raffle for a
$100 book gift certificate as well as provide your contact information
if you are willing to participate in a follow-up interview. Thanks
and best wishes!
