Sustainability Leadership Fellowship Cohort: 2013-2014
Ph.D. Candidate, School of Education
Research Summary: Playing different roles in my life as a mother, wife, daughter, sister, student, and educator, allowed me to be a leader for a long time. Walking through the professional leadership road, I discovered that it is not an easy path for women. Although women have gained leadership positions in various arenas worldwide, including Saudi Arabia, they are still underrepresented in playing such roles in comparison to men. I am so passionate about gender gap in leadership positions and women’s involvement in decision-making in higher education. I seek to explore the path of female leaders in order to inspire future ones.
