Abstract

In light of current demographic developments and recent technological innovations common to industrialized nations, how to create and promote sustainability in combining career and care is an increasingly important social issue. In this contribution, we focus on the role of societal norms about career and care, rethinking the rhetoric of 'choice'and 'balance' in career decision making (see De Hauw and Greenhaus, Chapter 15, this volume).
