Leadership and Self-Development Workshop for Women: A Research Report.
Britton, Virginia; Elmore, Patricia B.
This study was conducted to determine if the Leadership and Self-Development Workshop for Women changed the participants' attitudes toward leadership and attitudes toward individual issues that are identified with the concerns of women today. Subjects were 25 women students enrolled as sophomores at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. The Attitudes Toward Feminist Issues Scale (ATFI Scale) and the Leadership and Self-Development Scale were mailed to participants five day prior to the first day of the workshop with instructions to complete the scales before coming to the workshop. The two scales were again administered at the end of the five-day workshop. The subscale and total score means on the preworkshop and postworkshop administrations of the ATFI Scale and the total score mean on the preworkshop and postworkshop administrations of the Leadership and Self-Development Scale were submitted to a one-tailed dependent t-test. The results indicated that the participants in the Leadership and Self-Development Workshop for Women exhibited more leadership qualities and more liberal feminist attitudes after the workshop than before the workshop.
