Authority, Voice, and Influence for Women

Sept. 28
2-4 p.m.
110 O'Dowd Hall


Even when women have titles and roles that confer authority, they are more likely to be interrupted, questioned, and challenged than their male colleagues. At the same time, speech and behavior that is considered appropriate for a man in leadership may be criticized as overly aggressive or intimidating when coming from a woman leader. Research on intersectional identities complicates the picture further, with people responding differently based on characteristics including perceived race, LGBTQ+ status, ethnicity, and other differences.
