Journal of College Student Development, v44 n5 p653-69 Sep-Oct 2003
Investigates the influence of psychological variables upon female college students' aspirations for leadership positions in their future careers. Results demonstrated that connectedness needs, gender role, self-esteem, and fears of negative evaluation accounted for a significant amount of the variance in predicting college women's leadership aspirations. Implications of these findings for improving leadership development initiatives for college women are discussed. (Contains 69 references and 3 tables.) (GCP)
