Primary Instructor:

The purpose of this course is to examine gender differences in access to leadership positions. We will examine the extent to which women occupied leadership positions during the 1990s and early 2000s and what we can expect during the 21st century. Furthermore, we explore various explanations as to why men have been more likely than women to hold leadership positions, particularly at executive, board, and partnership levels. A particular focus of the course will be on the experiences of the most current generation of graduating students. This cohort has grown up with the notion of gender equality and ‘Girl Power’ and may play a critical role in advancing gender equality in the workplace. In addition to discussing gender and leadership from an academic perspective, we consider the practical career concerns as students consider their future career paths, develop personal strategic career plans, and learn what employers currently are looking for in potential hires.
