Characteristic and Agentic Qualities of Women Leaders Amidst Global Crises

Hayes, Catherine, Corrie, Ian, Graham, Yitka, Crane-Kramer, Gillian M. M. and Rowland, Toby Lloyd (2021) Characteristic and Agentic Qualities of Women Leaders Amidst Global Crises. In: Women and Leadership in Higher Education During Global Crises. IGI Global, pp. 15-35. ISBN 9781799864912

Item Type: Book Section


This chapter serves to deconstruct the characteristic and agentic qualities of women leaders amidst global crises, which are also reflected in the traits of women managing in more recognisable and relatable leadership roles in the context of HE. Within this will be the core acknowledgements that on a global level the impact of crises inevitably leads to a disproportionate impact on women, a lack of prioritisation of global impetus to address levels of gender inequality, and the embedded role of gender equity in relation to human progression and development on a macro level. This global perspective illuminates the inequalities that women educators face and the impact that this has on the broader scope of human development through educational impact. Whilst situational specificity is significant in terms of the context of HE leadership, the universality of human experience underpinning them remains the connecting thread, which enables the deconstruction of meaning making in applied educational leadership.
