Travelling towards a mirage? Gender, leadership and higher education

Tanya Fitzgerald, Jane Wilkinson

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    There can be little doubt that universities benefit from diversity in their student and staff population. Why do women remain under-represented in the senior academic leadership roles and in key positions along the academic career ladder? Why do women not advance at a rate proportional to that of their male peers? How do institutional policy and politics courses influence decisions in regard to who occupy senior roles? In this book the authors use the metaphor of a mirage to map the current climate in higher education and examine whether equity and equality policies and practices have had an impact on the participation of women as leaders and managers in higher education.
