Abstract

A persistent gap exists in literature surrounding the inequalities of women in higher education senior administration roles. This study explores how white women in higher education senior administration roles navigate the interplay of power and privilege by examining both how power and privilege have worked in their disadvantage and advantage. Additionally, participants discuss their responsibility in utilizing their power and privilege for the benefit of other women and minoritized populations. Using an intersectional feminist lens in semi-structured interviews, the participants' critical reflections led to the emergence of the following categories of findings: an awareness of self and power structures, leveraging power and privilege for others, and steps towards disruption of current power systems and structures. In this chapter, the word “women” refers to all people who identify as women.
