Women in Leadership: Problem-Solving the Dilemmas of Everyday Living
The Women in Leadership Series is an opportunity for women to explore leadership dynamics through teaching, practices and problem-solving: how best to understand and handle power in meaningful and inspiring ways, to overcome tension between our roles as women and our multiple daily roles as leaders.
Problem-solving allows us to address specific questions and needs of each workshop participant. In an extended time frame, the group will focus on the problems you wish to solve. Family and relationship conflicts; troubled dynamics at work; issues of health and well-being; experiences of discrimination; challenging glass ceilings: since we are all connected, whatever one woman brings to the dialogue becomes an occasion for learning and change for every participant. So join us with your story and your desire for progress.
Beth Roy, Ph.D. is a longtime mediator in the San Francisco Bay Area. Trained as a sociologist at University of California, Berkeley, she teaches there in the Peace and Conflict Studies program. She writes books on social conflict, most recently The Bernal Story: Mediating Class and Race in a Multicultural Community (Syracuse University Press, 2008) and 41 shots…and Counting: What Amadou Diallo teaches us about Policing, Race, and Justice (Syracuse University Press, 2008). Dr. Roy is a founder of the Practitioners Research and Scholarship Institute (PRASI), a network of conflict resolution practitioners dedicated to supporting colleagues whose cultures and approaches were absent from the existing literature to regard their lived experience as the basis of research and to write their knowledge for publication. She co-edited Recentering Culture and Knowledge in Conflict Resolution Practice (Syracuse University Press, 2008).
