Religious influence in a community might affect whether or not a woman works, regardless of her own religious preferences, according to a Baylor University study by Aaron Franzen and Jenna Griebel. The researchers found that married women between the ages of 18 and 65 are more likely to work outside the home in communities that are predominantly mainline Protestant and black Protestant. Franzen is a former Baylor sociology researcher and Griebel is a research assistant in Baylor’s department of sociology in the College of Arts & Sciences.

An article about new research by Cindy Riemenschneider, Ph.D., professor of information systems and associate dean for research and faculty development in Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business, found employers have been focusing on the wrong challenges facing women in the IT field. Riemenschneider’s study shows that occupational culture and informal social networks at IT firms are areas that need more attention than areas such as work-family conflict and organizational structures. Focusing on mentoring and co-ed social activities among employees can also be helpful, according to the study.
