WGS.150 Gender, Power, Leadership, and the Workplace
Provides an analytic framework to understand the roles that gender, race, and class play in defining and determining access to leadership and power in the United States, especially in the context of the workplace. Explores women and men in leadership positions within the corporate, political and non-profit sectors, focusing on women of color and immigrant women. Looks at specific policies, such as affirmative action, parental leave, child care, and working-time, and the role they play or could play in achieving parity. Students further investigate ways in which these policies address gender, racial, and class inequities, and develop their ability to think critically about mechanisms for change. Limited to 25.
