Women's Leadership Interview Archives
This interview collection is comprised of written transcripts of interviews that IWL Leadership Scholars have conducted with women leaders. These transcripts are resources for researchers in the field of women’s leadership, for students interested in challenges and successes women face in leadership, and for practitioners and policy makers working on women’s issues. Broad areas the interviews cover include work and family issues; definitions of leadership; the ways that race, class, and gender influence access to, and exercise of, leadership; and generational issues in leadership. Since the inception of the Leadership Scholars Certificate Program in the fall of 1999, our students have conducted annual interviews with outstanding women leaders.
- Demonstrate and showcase women's leadership, making visible women's accomplishments, their approaches, and reflections on leadership for social change;
- Examine what young leaders want to know about women's leadership for social change;
- Increase awareness of interviews as a valuable vehicle for learning about leadership; and
- Explore and analyze how leadership for social change varies in diverse contexts.
