Women Leading Change in Academia:
Breaking the Glass Ceiling, Cliff, and Slipper
Women Leading Change in Academia: Breaking the Glass Ceiling, Cliff, and Slipper , is a groundbreaking edited collection to be released in fall 2019. In it, Dr. Callie Rennison and Dr. Amy Bonomi convene the perspectives of diverse women academic leaders who discuss their rise to key leadership positions and effective change-making in higher education, despite underlying structural barriers and bias that disadvantage women. Contributors underscore the revolutionary power and innovation that women leaders bring to bear to improve upon business as usual in the academy—even in the “glass cliff” scenario when their risk of failure should be highest. Women across leadership positions—presidents, provosts, deans, and department chairs—discuss leading strategic planning, culture change, and strategies for successful negotiation, networking, mentoring, and work-life balance. Contributors also underscore strategies for leading powerful change in the academy early in their careers when they did not hold formal administrative roles.   Women Leading Change in Academia  is intended for women, allies, and institutions committed to equitable conditions for women leaders in higher education.
