An in-depth study by the authors, based on interviews of 57 women administrators in social welfare agencies, revealed variations in career paths, education, and experiences and concerns. The study identified and defined three practice settings of the respondents: public, voluntary, and emergent agencies. Data from the study comparing characteristics of the respondents across the settings are presented.
