2) From WMW's February "Women on Campus" profile: "I?d like to encourage women
graduate students to remember why they came to school and what they want for
their own careers and lives­and to ask for the help they need from their
teachers. Graduate school isn?t necessarily easy, but it should be a
wonderful experience­it should be fun!"  -- Connie Gersick, PhD, Visiting
Scholar, Yale School of Management and Founding Faculty Director, UCLA Women's
Leadership Institute   Check out the entire interview by WMW fellow Yuenan Wang
