New Text on Women and Leadership, Addressing the Needs and Aspirations of Today’s Diverse Students

Posted by Stylus Publishing on May 26, 2020

We Are The Leaders We’ve Been Waiting For, Women and Leadership Development in College by Julie E. Owen.

At this time of social flux, of changing demographics on campus and the world beyond, of recognition of intersectional identities, as well as the wide variety of aspirations and career goals of today’s women undergraduates, how can colleges and universities best prepare them for the demands of modern leadership?

This text speaks to the changing context of today’s women students’ experiences, recognizing that their work-life goals may go beyond climbing the corporate ladder to include social innovation and entrepreneurial goals, policy and politics, and social activism.

This book is a product of multiple collaborations and intellectual contributions of a diverse group of undergraduate and graduate women. They provided research support and critical readings, as well as diverse narratives included throughout the book, not as an ideal for readers to aspire to but as an authentic expression of how their distinct and sometimes non-conforming lived experiences shaped their understandings of leadership.
