Women’s Leadership as Inclusive Leadership
Presented by Amy Ilhan, Associate Professor, MAOL

Do women lead differently?  Are women leaders uniquely positioned for inclusive, ethical and effective leadership across differences? This presentation will explore interconnections between women’s leadership and inclusive leadership.  Investigating barriers to women’s leadership and attention to women’s experiences as leaders can provide insight into inequities and challenges facing all who are underrepresented in traditional leadership positions. We will also consider ways that women leaders can be inclusive leaders: by bringing diverse voices and perspectives to decision-making; creating greater understanding and respect for differences; highlighting the need for systemic structural change to promote equity, inclusion, and social justice; and empowering action to achieve these goals.
