This webcast will feature scholarly research and practice from the fields of women and leadership in education and business. The session will be facilitated by two AHRD members, Dr. Susan Madsen and Dr. Kathi Tunheim. They co-lead the new Leadership SIG that was formed in February, 2010. Dr. Madsen has written two books and many academic journal articles on prominent women leaders, specifically female governors and college presidents. Dr. Tunheim has spent two decades developing women executives at Fortune 100 companies in Minneapolis, MN. Her most recent research is studying "The Golden Skirt Rule," a federal law mandating a minimum of 40% of women on corporate boards in Norway.
Dr. Madsen and Dr. Tunheim will discuss not only the academic literature in these fields but will also share their practical learnings from their combined 55 years of teaching, consulting and writing in the field of leadership.
