Identity, Influence, and Politics. Symposium 7. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This packet contains three papers on gender identity; power and influence styles in program planning; and white male backlash from a symposium on human resource development (HRD). The first paper, "Identification of Power and Influence Styles in Program Planning Practice" (Baiyin Yang), explores the relationship between HRD practitioners using different styles of power and influence tactics in designing and planning programs and organizational political contexts. Power and influence styles identified through cluster analysis included shotgun, tactician, ingratiator, and bystander. The second paper, "Gender Consciousness Development: A Critical Literature Review" (Laura L. Bierema, Jessica T. Kovan), is a critical review of the literature conducted to understand the empirical and theoretical underpinnings of gender consciousness development in a work context. The review found key themes in the literature related to the development of awareness, including identity, social context, and the learning process, but reported that there is not a cohesive body of literature on gender consciousness. The final paper, "White Male Backlash: Practitioner Perspectives on the Phenomenon" (Martin B. Kormanik), posits that white male backlash has emerged as an American social phenomenon. Although there is little research on this issue, a survey administered to a purposeful sample of 76 HRD practitioners generated quantitative and qualitative data on the phenomenon. The papers contain reference sections. (KC)
