Gender-Responsible Leadership
Detecting Bias, Implementing Interventions


Other Titles in:
Business & Management

February 1993 | 320 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
By combining sound feminist theory and group dynamic principles with information on how to be a leader in a nonhierarchical, consensus-oriented framework, this book offers a unique approach to leadership. It deals with such issues as: the way leaders collude in maintaining gender biases; how patriarchy, power and process can be viewed in relation to feminist theory and group dynamics; the frustrations that facilitators face as they deal with these; and how these frustrations can be dealt with through principles of effective leadership.
