Alessandra Tantawi (Sociology Class of 2015) published her research on outmoded ways of thinking about work and careers on the website One Million for Workplace Flexibility.  Alessandra read over 45 articles and book chapters in the process of writing this editorial, concluding that the way we think about ideal workers— uninterrupted, undistracted, long hours, constant availability—does not match what today’s worker brings to her or his job.  She advocates that we rethink both workplace policies as well as attitudes towards work. Her research was performed in Stephen Sweet’s sociology course “Work and Family.”  Read Alessandra’s article here: http://www.workflexibility.org/todays-ideal-worker-yesterdays/.
