Factors that Enable Women of South Asian and African Descent to Succeed in Leadership Positions in Higher Education
Kamassah, Sharon
College Quarterly, v13 n3 Sum 2010
This research study focused on the factors that enable women of South Asian and African descent to succeed as leaders in the college system. The findings were derived from online questionnaires and in-depth interviews of 16 racialized women from two Greater Toronto Area (GTA) colleges. Many factors and recommendations were shared. Some of the recommendations made were the need to have targeted employment equity plans that aim to increase representation of quality employees of diverse backgrounds by instituting measures that provide needed understanding and support of employees, particularly racialized leaders. Increasing recruitment efforts and better training hired managers to conduct and supervise staff of various backgrounds was also another general recommendation articulated.
