Kipnes Fund Project and Final Report
Dr. Arnold’s research project compared the experiences of female leaders in different public and private sector industries whose voices have been silenced within their organizations. Findings are being used for coaching and related leadership development efforts that will retain and strengthen women leaders and the organizations in which they work.
Dr. Arnold has written a book based on this research, Silenced and sidelined: How women leaders find their voices and break barriers, to be published in June 2020 by Rowman and Littlefield. Additional publications supported by the Kipnes award include the following:
