Publication: Women in Sport Leadership
Dr. Laura Burton recently co-authored a new book on Women in Sport Leadership.
The book describes that “although women and girls participate in sport in greater numbers than ever before, research shows there has been no significant increase in women leading sport organizations. This book takes an international, evidence-based perspective in examining women in sport leadership and offers future directions for improving gender equity. With contributions from leading international sport scholars and practitioners, it explores the opportunities and challenges women face while exercising leadership in sport organizations and evaluates leadership development practices.”
Dr. Burton is incredibly proud of the work that was contributed by both established and emerging scholars. Her hope is that everyone who reads the book will come away with an appreciation for the work that has been done while also being inspired to continue scholarly inquiry and further support the advancement of women in sport leadership.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to co-edit this book with my friend and colleague Sarah Leberman. It is not often that you are able to spend time together reflecting on research that has helped us to understand the opportunities and the challenges for women in sport leadership while also considering what is needed to move research in this area forward.” – Dr. Laura Burton
