Description


Developing Women Leaders in the Academy through Enhanced Communication Strategies explores the experiences, strategies, and triumphs of women who have attained leadership roles within the academy as well as the shortfalls, disappointments, and battle scars many women leaders have experienced in their quest to lead. Clear direction, focused strategies, and enhanced communication are necessary to increase the ever-growing number of women in leadership positions in the academy. Contributions to this book discuss the ways in which these concepts have been employed to transcend the "academic ceiling" by creating mentoring networks for women, training programs, and other "ladders of ascension," encouraging future leaders to be more assertive, self-assured, and strategic within the academic terrain. Scholars of communication, education, and women's studies will find this volume particularly useful.
