Women are stepping up in greater numbers to take their place as leaders in the workplace. Increased educational opportunities and social changes over the past three decades have contributed to this transition. Yet, gender issues remain at the forefront of the national conversation about the role and influence of women in the workplace.
According to this week’s guest, Dr. Alexis Smith, an Assistant Professor in the Management Department at Oklahoma State University Spears School of Business, women are having an impact even on the expectations we have of how men lead.
Dr. Smith earned her PhD in management at Tulane University and her BA from Rice University. Her research interests include gender, status and influence, as well as diversity and bias at work. Dr. Smith is a member of the Academy of Management, the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychologists, and the Southern Management Association.
