A colleague of mine asked for my help in recruiting Asian American women to take an Internet survey she’s created to help analyze work and family issues. It’s open to all women who self-identify as Asian American. It’s not exactly a short survey — it’ll take about 30 minutes to complete — but the data will be very valuable in helping her understand some very important issues. Please consider participating and please help by directing your friends, coworkers, relatives, etc. to the URL below. Thanks.
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 experiences.
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 Amherst. 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 survey 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!
