Compared with the representation of women in the U.S. labor force, an overall gap continues to persist in the number of women in positions of power and authority at the top of the hierarchy within organizations. Lessons learned from the challenges and opportunities articulated by women and men in positions of power will inform organizations of the importance of building a culture of gender inclusivity across organizational boundaries.

Rising Voices and Experiences of Women in Leadership is a critical scholarly resource that examines gender constructions as they intersect and interact with various sociological identities as well as case studies on the rising voice and experience of women as senior organizational leaders. The book also addresses the social reengagement by women as part of significant movements and highlights organizations and practices that are breaking the barriers of gender inequality in the workplace. Featuring a wide range of topics such as entrepreneurship, social justice, and crisis leadership, this book is ideal for professionals, researchers, managers, executives, leaders, academicians, sociologists, policymakers, and students in fields that include humanities, social sciences, women’s studies, business management, health sciences, educational studies, and political sciences.
