The chapters draw from theoretical and empirical work and identify gaps in the research, compare and contrast the experiences of women of color, and explore possible linkages between their experiences. Topics include trends and issues, leadership styles/characteristics, tenure and promotion, mentoring/social networks, and challenges and possibilities that weave commonalities and differences among African-American, Hispanic, Native American, and Asian-Pacific women.
