Teachers College Record“A book that is a truly exceptional contribution to the literature on leadership. The authors’ distillation of the interviews to derive the nine tenets of effective leadership make this a must read for aspiring leaders and followers in higher education. I especially liked the fact that the tenets were tucked away in the back after the authors’ thoughtful discussion of the obstacles of this ‘road less traveled’. They highlight the speed bumps and crossroads that traditionally hold women and people of color from leadership positions.
Women at the Top is inspirational because most women who read it will see themselves trying to balance their competing family priorities with career paths and can say, ‘I can do this too.’ The future looks bright indeed for women who aspire to leadership roles in higher education, and this deeply personal and reflective book will serve as a guidebook and resource for other women who seek leadership roles in the nation’s colleges and universities."
