  • ‘Let Us Roll Up Our Sleeves’: Amplifying Female Academic Leadership
           Through Collaboration and Mentorship

    • Authors: Amy Poland et al.
      Abstract: The strengths of female leadership are illustrated through the 400 year history of the Catholic Sisters of St. Joseph (CSSJ) and their commitment to their charism which focuses on unity, inclusion and relationship building. Within the colleges they established, the Sisters have demonstrated their commitment to collaboration in their many leadership positions - both formal and informal - within the academy. This article focuses on the leadership of the Sisters as demonstrable examples of female leadership within academia, and makes suggestions for carrying the charism of the CSSJ into the future, expanding their focus on inclusivity to incorporate a broad expanse of female leaders.

  • From Negotiator to Note-Taker: The Role of Women Leaders and Academic
           Technology Cultures

    • Authors: Leslie Zenk et al.
      Abstract: For years, there has been a perceived inaccessibility of the field of Information Technology, centering on an organizational culture of “men and their machines” (Clark, 2012). This paper examines the role of women who lead technology initiatives in higher education and presents the experiences of these women leaders and their collision of organizational cultures as part of a comparative case study of two public institutions. Findings suggest elements of culture within the IT field that contribute to the experiences of women leaders in IT, and illuminate that leading a technology project may add a layer of gender expectations and gender roles that are more entrenched in the IT world than in other areas of higher education.

  • Programmatic Foci of Women in Academic Leadership Positions at
           Historically Black Colleges and Universities: Intersectionality and
           Institutional Mission

    • Authors: Nina F. Schor
      Abstract: The present studies compare, between Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs; n=102) and a non-HBCU cohort matched for location, religious and vocational mission, and student enrollment (comparator CUs; n=102), the programmatic foci of women in institutional leadership positions. They demonstrate that, at HBCUs, women are more prevalent in leadership roles with male-dominated foci (e.g., finance), and less prevalent in roles with female-dominated foci (e.g., public relations) than at comparator CUs (p < 0.01). A survey of academic leaders (n=1,053 invited; 111 viewed survey; 83 completed survey) at these institutions indicates that women leaders at HBCUs more frequently fill institutional programmatic gaps than their counterparts at comparator CUs (p < 0.001) or men in any academic setting (p < 0.005). Reasons may include the social purpose of HBCUs; the stereotype threat of the traditional “service” role of women and the unique intersectionality encountered by Black women faculty; and the importance of race over gender in homosociability at HBCUs. This suggests that emphasis on the socioeconomic mission and philosophy of higher education may enhance faculty recruitment diversification efforts in higher education. It also raises the question of whether seeing women in atypical leadership roles influences the career aspirations and attitudes towards women leaders of the students, both men and women, at HBCUs.

  • The Dynamic of Women Leading Women in Higher Education

    • Authors: Jody L. Reding PhD
      Abstract: With each passing decade, women make significant strides in their educational attainment, better positioning themselves for leadership roles. Despite decades of research assessing the leadership styles of women, the established picture of women and leadership is mixed. On one hand, women are praised for possessing many of the leadership skills, behaviors and attributes associated with effective leadership. Yet, on the other hand, women tend to deny support to one another. Twenty women with various years and levels of leadership experience in higher education were interviewed to explore how they describe their experiences leading women and being led by women. Initially I planned to utilize Eagly and Carli’s (2007) labyrinth of leadership as the theoretical framework. However, analysis and interpretation of the data was more precisely aligned with Kouzes and Posner’s (2007) paradigm: the leadership challenge. Results of the study revealed women who successfully lead other women, influence those they lead through a willingness to strengthen and challenge, pull them forward, and continuously improve.

  • The Life of Dr. Claire Owens

    • Authors: Kelley J. Rice
      Abstract: Dr. Owens “contributed more to the welfare of her fellow man then many sighted people.”22 Her determination allowed her to manage her personal and business affairs, participate in civic organizations, and be a political activist. She had a passion to help others and at the age of 90, was still practicing her profession and active in her community. Those who knew her saw her as a “remarkable woman”23 and would fill her mailbox with cards expressing their sentiments. When asked how she was able to accomplish so much, Dr. Owens simply stated “I guess I succeeded in doing just about everything I attempted because I was too ignorant to know that a blind person is not supposed to step around in the world.”

  • Grace Steinberg Day

    • Authors: Terri Deayon
      Abstract: Grace’s life overflowed with leadership accomplishments and accolades. Beginning in 1950, Grace was a member of JWI (Jewish Women International) and its predecessor organization, B’nai B’rith Women (BBW). JWI is a leading Jewish organization immersed in empowering women and girls of all backgrounds through economic literacy, communication training, healthy relationships, and the proliferation of women’s leadership. Their mission is to make certain that all females have the fundamental right to live in a safe home, thrive in healthy relationships, have control over their financial futures, and realize the full potential of their personal strength. Grace gained national distinction as the International President of the organization from 1980-1982. While in this role, she made frequent trips to Washington, D.C., affording her the opportunity to meet dignitaries such as President Gerald Ford, Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, and Senator Edward M. Kennedy (Grace Day obituary). From 1960-1962, Grace was special assistant attorney general for the state of Missouri. In 1963, she was admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court. Grace was named the first female president of the St. Joseph Bar Association in 1972. In 2005, she was recognized by her alma mater, receiving the Marjorie Breeden Award from the Women in Law at the University of South Dakota, as well as the Alumni Achievement Award. In 2010, she received the YWCA’s Women in the Workplace Lifetime Achievement Award. She was named Missouri Lawyer Weekly’s Woman of the Year as part of the 2011 Women’s Justice Awards for over six decades of service to family law, even when representing women was unpopular, as well as unprofitable. This award recognizes women in the state of Missouri who demonstrate leadership service, integrity, and sacrifice. It lauds women who have been successful in improving the quality of justice and exemplifying the highest ideals of the legal profession. All of these distinctions provide evidence of her lifelong dedication to the field of law, women, and leadership.

  • Iowa’s “First Lady”: Principal, Superintendent,
           Professor, and ISTA President

    • Authors: Veronika Cummings
      Abstract: In 1874 Phebe was unanimously chosen as the city superintendent of schools by the Davenport board of education (Barnhart, 1947, p.25). The board offered her a salary considerably less than that of her male predecessor; and, she rejected the offer until they agreed to a pay increase (Phebe Sudlow, n.d.). She purportedly told the board members, “If it was lower because of my qualifications, I will understand. If it is because I am a woman, however, I cannot accept it” (Christian, 1989, p.6). Phebe served as superintendent for Davenport Public Schools from 1874-1878. The rise of Phebe Sudlow from first female principal to first female superintendent gave the Women’s Suffrage Movement in Iowa a boost and garnered national attention for the city of Davenport (Petersen, 1970, p.35). In 1878 Phebe accepted the appointment of Lady Professor of English Language and Literature in the State University (present-day University of Iowa) at the full salary of $1,700. In 1878, The Educational Weekly published an article on Phebe’s promotion to Lady Professor of English Language; and, its editors had the following to say about her: “Miss Sudlow carries with her to her new field of labor the respect, friendship, and good will of an entire corps of teachers. Davenport’s loss is Iowa’s gain” (Vaile & Winchell, 1878, p.346). Phebe was the first female professor of the University, earning a salary equal to that of her male colleagues (Phebe Sudlow, n.d.).

    • Authors: Jean M. Haar
      Abstract: Bolman and Deal's 4th edition of Reframing Organizations: Artistry, Choice, and Leadership remains a classic, "must have" resource for those involved in organizational leadership. The edition supports the relevance and timeliness of the authors' insightful approach about organizations and leadership. The authors reinforce the usefulness of their four-frame model (structural, human resource, political, symbolic) for refining leadership practices. The four frames serve as a tool to analyze organizational decision-making and to reflect on the effectiveness of processes, procedures, and results. Updated research, examples, and case studies add to those previously drawn from business, education, health care, and the public sector. The information helps leaders more creatively lead complex organizations. As Bolman and Deal note, "We try not to offer solutions but rather to suggest more powerful and provocative ways of thinking about organizations' opportunities and pitfalls" (p. xii).

  • You Gotta Be Determined to Get in There: Voices of Women Higher Education
           Technology Leaders

    • Authors: Marilyn Drury
      Abstract: Three women higher education Chief Information Officers (CIOs) provided their lived experiences and perspectives on barriers they encountered and methods used to overcome the barriers as they pursued and achieved their current positions. The conceptual framework intersects gendered organizational theory, feminist standpoint theory, and occupational jurisdiction. This research, being unique in specifically studying women CIOs in higher education, expands the knowledge base regarding women seeking or maintaining leadership positions by revealing many barriers encountered and that higher education information technology organizations contain gendered organizational elements. Actions organizations and individuals can take to foster gender-friendly cultures are suggested.

  • Unpacking Evidence of Gender Bias

    • Authors: Connie L. Fulmer
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate gender bias in pre-service principals using the Gender-Leader Implicit Association Test. Analyses of student-learn- ing narratives revealed how students made sense of gender bias (biased or not-biased) and how each reacted to evidence (surprised or not-surprised). Two implications were: (1) the need for leadership programs to help students identify and unpack gender bias, and (2) to provide new leaders with strategies to con- front and reduce gender bias in the organizations in which they will lead. A model for identifying, confronting, and reducing gender bias is presented as scaffolding to help educational leadership faculty and students understand the pervasive nature of gender bias in order to lead others in the difficult work of "undoing" gender bias.

  • Firsts

    • Authors: Marilyn Grady
      Abstract: Wilma Mankiller was a first-the first woman Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, the second-largest U.S. tribe. Her death on April 6, 2010 focused attention on her accomplishments as a legendary leader.Wilma Pearl Mankiller, born November 18, 1945, in Tahlequah was sixth of eleven children. In 1956 her family moved to San Francisco as part of a Bureau of Indian Affairs relocation effort that promised jobs in the city. In 1963 she married Hugo Olaya, an Ecuadorean businessman, and had daughters Gina and Felicia. The takeover of Alcatraz by Indian demonstrators was a life-changing event for Wilma. During the 19-month occupation, she visited the demonstrators and helped raise money for the cause. She began taking courses at Skyline College and San Francisco State University while working as a coordinator of Indian programs for the Oakland public schools. When her marriage ended in divorce, she returned to live on her grandfather's land in Oklahoma in 1977 with her daughters. She became involved in volunteer work related to tribal affairs and leading health and Head Start initiatives and then became economic stimulus coordinator for the Cherokee Nation. She completed a bachelor's degree at Flaming Rainbow University and took graduate courses at the University of Arkansas in community planning.

  • Children's Books as a Source of Influence on Gender
           Role Development: Analysis of Female Characters Using Jung's Four

    • Authors: Shirley J. Mills et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of the study was to answer this question: Do children when choosing a book to read for pleasure receive a stereotypical impression of the female role as opposed to the male role as defined by the literature' A qualitative study reviewed main female characters of the Children's Choice books of 2008 with Jung's archetypes (Great Good Mother, Wise Old Man, Hero, and Trickster). Content analysis was conducted using Hershey-Freeman's critique. Hero archetype was most common with Great Good Mother as second. Female characters analyzed appear to epitomize traits of a new generation of leaders "modeling the way".

    • Authors: Candace F. Raskin
      Abstract: Michael Fullan's Motion Leadership-The Skinny on Becoming Change Savvy provides what he describes as the skinny or the "core unobscured essence of the matter" (p. 2) on how to move individuals and organizations through the process of change. The book is designed as a precursor to an online series of experiences called Motion Leadership the Movie-a product that will provide footage and interactive tools to help a leader with system improvement. The intent of the book is to increase readers' knowledge and insight about change in an efficient and succinct manner. Fullan provides basic insights and ideas about becoming a change savvy leader.Fullan introduces readers to what he believes is the single underlying challenge to all change, inertia. He notes, "Change problems come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common-they are mired in inertia" (p. 9). The book provides readers with insights on how leaders can address the state of inertia and through whole-system reform create large amounts of positive motion in an improved direction (aka motion leadership). Fullan emphasizes that motion leadership is different-it is about getting inside of movement and providing the reader with the essence of how to make complex change simpler and more powerful. Fullan states, "The skinny is about "simplexity"-finding the smallest number of high-leverage, easy-to-understand actions that unleash stunning powerful consequences" (p.16). Motion Leadership provides readers with the skinny on how leaders can target inertia and set large-scale positive change in motion.

  • Gender Differences in Research Mentorship and Pretenured Conunselor

    • Authors: Cynthia A. Briggs et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine whether pre-tenured counselor educators receive research mentorship. Furthermore, this study investigated whether mentorship differs for female and male faculty members. The instrument utilized was a web-based survey entitled the Research Mentor Quality Questionnaire (RMQQ). The 139 respondents (51.7% response rate) indicated most pre-tenured counselor educators do receive research mentorship. Additionally, the quality of research mentorship is not significantly different for females and males on most items. Implications for the profession of counselor education and suggestions for future study are presented.

  • Shared Leadership Experiences of Women Community College Presidents

    • Authors: Suzanne Campbell et al.
      Abstract: According to the American Council on Education study The American College President: 2007 Edition only 23% of college presidencies were held by women as late as 2006. While the number of female executive officers has doubled since 1986, progress in achieving the presidency has been undeniably slow for women. To better understand a woman's road to the presidency, a collective case study was conducted to explore the career paths of six community college women presidents. Data collected revealed commonalities in their experiences. The results ofthe study provided key information for women seeking presiden- tial positions in community colleges.

  • A Decade of Inquiry: The Status of Female Superintendents and Secondary
           Principals in the High Plains

    • Authors: Doreen Gosmire et al.
      Abstract: This research provides insight into the status of female administrators from a particular geographical area in rural America. Findings reveal that some progress has been made across the United States but there is more effort needed especially in the High Plains states. The numbers of females in ad- ministrative positions in the High Plains states from 1997 to 2007 were col- lected from the Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota Departments of Education. The percentages of females in the High Plains states were com- pared to national numbers for the same time period. There has been a pattern of increased numbers and percentages of females serving as superintendents and secondary principals across the United States and High Plain states. The High Plains states consistently lag behind the United States in the percentage of increase of practicing female superintendents and secondary principals for the decade of 1997 to 2007. When considering the status of female ad- ministrators, numbers do not tell the whole story. Additional aspects studied through qualitative inquiry were the career tracks of these women, the barriers they encountered, and the support systems provided for them.

  • First Things First: Writing Strategies

    • Authors: Marilyn Grady
      Abstract: Remember all the years you spent earning the academic credentials for your current position' Consider what you are expected to know and be able to do to fulfill your job responsibilities. For those who are expected to write for publication, what part of your credential-building academic experi- ences was dedicated to preparing you as a writer' The English majors among us would seem to be likely suspects for deep, rich, writing back- grounds. However, in collecting non-scientific data on this assumption, I am not convinced the English majors spent enough time writing while earning their credentials. So, those who have chosen academic career paths are forced to "discover" writing in order to meet scholarly productivity expectations.A curious book by Goldsberry is worth reading. The author is a professor of English at the University of Hawaii, a Michener Fellow, and an instructor at the Maui Writers Retreat. The Writer's Book ofWisdom: 101 Rulesfor Mastering Your Craft reflects Goldsberry's 25-year quest to collect "the best advice" for writers. The book, based on the premise that all writing is storytelling, is divided into three sections: Approach, Language, and Craft. The rules apply to all types of writing.
