Despised by Women; Devalued by Men: Blurring the Lines of Race and Gender in Leadership. A Black Woman Scholar Reflects on her Journey Researching “Great Men” Leaders

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the past, the defining group for conceptualizing leadership development and practice has been White middle class men (Bass, 1990; Nkomo, 1992; Parker, 2005). More recently, as researchers begin to study women in leadership, the focus has been limited to White middle class women. Thus in leadership literature, there exists two competing paradigms of leadership based almost exclusively of White women and men that have been generalizable to all people (Parker, 2005; Parker & ogilvie, 1996) when preparing aspirants for leadership. Therefore, this paper interrogates the resurgence of the “great man” positional leader and the race and gender implications associated with this theory. In doing so, the author draws from her research with Black men leaders (McClellan, 2006), discusses the strained notion of gender roles and assumptions in leadership research concerning Black women, and presents recommendations for future research.
