About this book

A discourse on women’s leadership within science education has, until now, been largely invisible in book form. This, therefore, is the first book to address women’s leadership within science education.
The book embraces relational ways of knowing as a foundation for leadership and takes courageous steps by exposing our innermost tensions, dilemmas, and feelings about leadership, making them available to others. The power/promise of feminine approaches to transform traditional leadership cultures is also addressed.
The authors believe that anyone can lead, regardless of position, title, years of experience or age. They also believe that each of us has a responsibility to provide some leadership and direction for the shared endeavours of which we are part.
The purpose of the book is to inspire and guide educators and academics in K-16 science education, as well as individuals in other professions, as their leadership skills develop. The leadership activities provided offer guidance and/or concrete ways to delve into issues of leadership.

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book itself is a model of what it seeks to promote.... by extending a welcome to the readers, speaking from authentic experience, and bringing 100% of themselves to the conversation about science education leadership.” (Janice Koch, Hofstra University)

“Very engaging and interesting. Well written and informative. I immediately wanted to send it to several of my younger (female) colleagues.” (Susan Chaplin, University of St. Thomas)
