Why Aren't More Women Advancing to the Most Senior Leadership Roles in Society? Critical Conversations #25

Karen A. Longman, Azusa Pacific University

We know that the leadership aspirations and advancement of women are hindered due to more than two dozen kinds of barriers, operating at three different levels (macro, meso, and micro). We’re only beginning to learn the importance of looking at leadership development through multiple sets of lenses regarding motivators and expectations, including generational differences and the impact of intersectionality. Applying this new learning is key if we want to strategically target leadership development programming in ways that resonate with the lived realities of a wider array of prospective leaders.

New Spaces & Roles for Student Affairs Educators

Michael J. Stebleton, University of Minnesota – Twin Cities
Hannah Oliha-Donaldson, University of Kansas

Recently I had the opportunity to interview my colleague and friend, Dr. Hannah Oliha-Donaldson. Dr. Oliha-Donaldson is a faculty member of communication studies at the University of Kansas. Her scholarly work focuses on organizational communication, intercultural communication, and diversity and equity issues in higher education. We met over 16 years ago when we were both employed at Inver Hills Community College, located in the Twin Cities area. It was at that time that we started our ongoing conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion around strategies to support students.. Read more.

Critical Religious Studies in Higher Education

Sachi Edwards, Soka University

While our critical scholarly discourse is becoming more visible, its visibility has not yet led to meaningful change in research, policy, and practice norms. In this column, I will address one small (but important!) example of the kind of change I hope to see in higher education religious, secular, and/or spiritual identity (RSSI) research: asking about religio-cultural background and socialization when collecting data on RSSIs.

Engaging Civic Religious Pluralism

Becca Hartman-Pickerill, Interfaith Youth Core

I am eager to share a highlights reel from Interfaith Youth Core’s (IFYC) monthly "Public Conversation Series: Centering Racial Equity in Building Interfaith America." The goal of this series has been to elevate the voices of practitioners, scholars, activists, artists, and civic leaders at the intersection of racial equity and interfaith cooperation. Each month is focused on a different topic, from the future of chaplaincy and equity in governance to anti-racism work within immigrant religious communities. Read more.

Fostering Moral Development

Alan Acosta, Clark University

Recently, the institution at which I work announced plans to resume campus operations for the Fall 2021 semester in a manner that resembles fall semesters prior to COVID-19. While there are lots of details still to be worked out, the announcement was met with cautious optimism, as many in the campus community are ready to put COVID-19 behind them and conceptualize what a life post-COVID-19 might look like.
