Course Description:
Women have made significant progress over the course of history in achieving greater equity in the public and private sectors. However, a number of barriers still exist that prevent women from fully reaching their potential. This course examines challenges and opportunities related to women's leadership development through discussion of course texts, business cases, guest speakers, and reflection. This course will also examine the current research on whether women's policy and leadership interests are freely expressed, and whether women's policy and leadership interests differ from men's (e.g., the gender gap in public opinion, educational status, justice system, and political involvement.).
