This description of Barbara Baran's work was prepared when Barbara Baran was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1996.
Barbara Baran founded and leads a national self-help society of Polish women over the age of 40, who characteristically face discrimination when they re-enter the job market after interim periods as full-time mothers and homemakers. The Society teaches business and self-employment skills, builds self-confidence, provides job placement services and publicizes role models.
