Servant-leadership as gender-integrative leadership: paving a path for more gender-integrative organizations through leadership education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Although numerous women have contributed essays and research on servant-leadership there is still a considerable gap in literature addressing feminist
perspectives and issues of gender in servant-leadership. This theoretical paper
attempts to fill that gap by presenting a discussion of servant-leadership that is
informed through feminist scholarship. The intent is to build a theoretical
foundation for conceiving servant-leadership as a gender-integrative approach to leadership. A further purpose is to propose gender-integrative discernment in
leadership education programs and suggest using servant-leadership as a
framework for discussing gender in leadership and organizations. Examples of
implications for leadership education programs are discussed in terms of
outcomes and assessment. Suggestions for course content are made.
