understanding of how gender affects leadership and what specific issues women face with respect to leadership. After successful completion of this course, students will understand (1) the historical context that affects women and leadership opportunities today, (2) specific understandings of women and sport leadership, (3) the subtle and nuanced ways that gender bias persists, and (4) how social constructions of gender affect both women and men's enactment of leadership. Finally, students will apply these understandings by (1) preparing guide for a sport organization aimed at improving a sport organization's ability to maximize its talent by minimizing gender biases culturally and structurally, and (2) taking steps to develop their own leadership aimed at inclusivity.
