Entrepreneurial Women
Three scholars – two of them former presidents – analyze data that suggest that female candidates may best men in a key area of college leadership. more I should add that, what attracted me in this article was this comment: " ... female presidents extend their gaze to include new ventures and risk taking in curriculum, student social programs and living arrangements, community involvement, and faculty appointment, promotion and tenure. Their attitudes, values and actions portray broader notions of how one can inspire institutional change and improvement." I'm not interested in the comparison; rather, I think that this is a good example to show that there are different ways of solving a problem (e.g., raising money/capital campaign) and good solutions lie in diverse ways of thinking and in thinking beyond the immediate/direct problem.
