Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to briefly recap some of the “tips from the top” which were offered to me by top and senior women working in Australian and American universities. This was part of my doctoral research which explored the perceptions of 24 top women academics/academic managers. Semi-structured interviews were undertaken with top and senior women to explore, amongst other issues, their experiences of “life at the top” and also analyse their suggestions for improving conditions for women and other minority groups wishing to participate and influence organisations at the top levels. This paper is also a response to the demonstrated keen interest from senior and top women in practical strategies to improve their professional performance in the organisations where they work. Hopefully, this paper will enable women and men aspiring to leadership positions to reflect and benefit from the practical experience of others who are their predecessors or peers.
