Abstract

This paper details the process and development of the second major phase of the CareerWISE intervention: communication training aimed at strengthening the knowledge and skills helpful to women as they navigate the varied interactions that may arise in mostly male environments. The CareerWISE communication training modules are organized in a hierarchical structure with three overarching categories: (1) Communication Elements, (2) Essential Skills, and (3) Advanced Strategies. The design protocol for module development employed a cyclical loop whereby content material was developed, piloted, and revised based on participant feedback. All of the CareerWISE communication training materials are interconnected, but also function as stand-alone pieces; this provides visitors to the site with a unique opportunity to engage the material for quick answers to vexing questions or to learn essential and advanced skills that may be used now and throughout the entirety of their careers.
