Women and Leadership
Summer 2014 quarter (Session II)
This course will examine the historical, cultural, and social reasons why women, despite their majority in many other sectors of life, are not filling leadership positions in the United States. We will also identify solutions that exist for individuals and groups, and what has been done historically and presently to improve the path to leadership for women. This course will primarily focus on US-related issues, but will also briefly study other countries and their struggles and successes in increasing gender diversity in leadership positions. Students will also get a chance to learn about their own leadership styles. Students will learn through course readings, research projects, group activities, online discussion, videos, seminars, presentations, guest lecturers, and personal reflection.
