Women Leaders in Higher Education synopsis
Leadership at universities requires physical, intellectual and emotional work. It involves multiple and complex tasks and responsibilities such as staff management, strategic management, operational planning, financial management, resources, policy development, quality assurance processes, improved student outcomes, and engagement with the community and professions / industry.
Leadership is not just a work of being a leader, it is a leadership that creates the attributes of "success" and "desirable". Leadership has the potential to be very attractive, but it is not immediately attractive to women, especially those who bear the burden of family responsibilities and household responsibilities, and who find it difficult to find a place to command.
But despite almost gloomy research evidence, women hold high leadership positions in highereducation, whatever their numbers are. There may be little doubt that universities benefit from diversity in their students and staff.
This book deals with central questions. Who are the women who succeed and occupy elite leadership positions in universities? How can their leadership be shaped by the institutional climate? What strategies do they learn, learn, and lead and manage? What about these women who do not fit the text of the sex? The chapters review the changing political landscape in highereducation; provide critical commentary on gender interaction, leadership, highereducation and organizational diversity, and benefit from critical education and management literature to provide a broader understanding of gender and elite leadership; this book will be essential for anyone interested or interested in politics Highereducation, academic leadership, organizational diversity and gender studies..
