Women’S Lived Experiences In Their Pathways To Leadership Positions In Universities In The Dominican Republic, Laura Sartori Apr 2020

Women’S Lived Experiences In Their Pathways To Leadership Positions In Universities In The Dominican Republic, Laura Sartori

Despite the convergence of these factors, there is a lack of research regarding how organizational identity is communicated during presidential searches for small, private colleges.
