Mid-career women in Coast Guard are leaving due to poor leadership, sexual assault
from Federal News Network
Mid-career women are leaving the Coast Guard at a higher rate than their male counterparts and there are a lot of factors to blame for it. A new study from the RAND Corporation, commissioned by the Coast Guard, found gender bias, sexual harassment, personal life factors and career opportunities were all reasons that mid-career women are leaving the service. “There’s a gap both for officers and enlisted and there is a cumulative retention gap that emerges in those first 10 years of service and then starts to stabilize,” said Kirsten Keller, senior behavioral scientist at RAND.
