An article from the Harvard Business Review discussed how so many incompetent men become leaders and shared that:
“female managers are more likely to elicit respect and pride from their followers, communicate their vision effectively, empower and mentor subordinates, and approach problem-solving in a more flexible and creative way (all characteristics of “transformational leadership”), as well as fairly reward direct reports.“
Women’s path to leadership positions are paved with many barriers including a very thick glass ceiling. But what we have NOT discussed, on the #3Wedu podcast, is that there ARE a growing number of men in higher ed who ARE attempting to remove these career obstacles.
Today (5/18) on the #3Wedu Podcast we will chat about the Men Who Support Women in Higher Ed, specifically the male advocates, mentors, support, and more we have had in our careers. Please join us here for the LIVE broadcast, hosted in Niagara Falls, Canada at 3 pm PST // 5 pm CDT // 6pm EST:
