Book Buzz from The International Leadership Association 2022 Global Conference. Sherylle Tan and Lisa DeFrank-Cole discuss their book Women and Leadership: Journey Towards Equity.
While women in the United States account for nearly half the workforce, they continue to encounter unique personal, social, and structural dynamics as leaders. Authors Lisa DeFrank Cole and Sherylle J. Tan explore these dynamics and more in Women and Leadership: Journey Towards Equity, the recipient of a 2022 TAA Most Promising New Textbook Award. Grounded in leadership theory and research, this text delves into the barriers and challenges women face on their leadership journeys. The text includes several chapters devoted to strategies and tools for overcoming obstacles, creating structural change, and moving towards greater equity.
Sherylle J. Tan is Director of Internships and Research at Kravis Leadership Institute and Visiting Assistant Professor at Claremont McKenna College. Lisa DeFrank-Cole is Professor & Director of the Leadership Studies Program at West Virginia University.
