Alumna to release edited volume of book on bias in leadership; professor named as contributor

Camila Montoya, MSOL ’15 is releasing an edited volume of the book titled, “Silencing Gender, Age, Ethnicity and Cultural Biases in Leadership.” Esther Gergen, PhD, associate professor of leadership studies and chair of the leadership studies department, also contributed a chapter to the book.

The book contains real-life accounts from Latinas in leadership positions in the United States. These women discuss how their professional goals may conflict with their culture’s expectations for them, and they describe the complexity of life choices for working Latinas, including their struggles in challenging such social assumptions.
