Gender Studies Lecture Series - Women as Leaders: Do They Make a Difference?

Monday, March 19, 2018 at 5:30pm to 7:00pm

Eugene McDermott Library (MC), MC 2.404
800 W. Campbell Road, Richardson, Texas 75080-3021

This event is sponsored by The School of Interdisciplinary Studies Gender Studies Program & Galerstein Gender Center, Office of Diversity and Community Engagement.

The Gender Studies Lecture Series was developed in collaboration with the Gender Studies Program in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, and invites renowned scholars from around the country to share the latest research on gender, sexuality and women.

Women are slowly emerging as leaders in many nations, despite the challenges inherent in the cultural definition of leadership as requiring masculine qualities. Even though robust gender stereotypes disadvantage women as leaders, they are especially gaining ground in institutions that serve the public good, including universities. Looking beyond the social justice gains that follow from including women in leadership, researchers are inquiring how and why the presence of women leaders may affect group and organizational outcomes.
