In Their Own Words: Women Chief Academic Officers Discuss the Community College and Their Career Experiences
Cejda, Brent D.
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v6 n3 p171-185 Jul 2008
Previous research has shown that a variety of skills and experiences contribute to the career advancement of community college leaders. With the increased representation of women in senior-level positions, this paper answers the call to move beyond male-versus-female comparisons. Through in-depth interviews and follow-up conversations, six female chief academic officers (CAOs) discuss their community college employment, the issues and challenges experienced in obtaining a chief academic officer position, personal development of skills and abilities to be successful in their positions, the recommendations they would share with aspiring and new CAOs, and their future career plans.
