Changing Faces Women's Leadership Seminar: A Model for Increasing Asia-Pacific Women's Entrepreneurial Participation, by Liz A. Dorn and Ann Hartman, in Women and Leadership around the World. This volume explores areas of women's leadership in four regions around the world: The Middle East, Europe, North America, and Asia Pacific. The chapters cover a wide range of important topics relevant to women and leadership within specific contexts around the world. The goal is to provide readers with explorations of women's experiences as leaders, including recent research studies, analysis and interpretation of statistics unpacking the status of women in various sectors and countries, stories of influential women leaders with national or local spheres of influence, and including recommendations for positive change to increase women's access to positions of authority. The volume contributors use various theories and conceptualizations to problematize, historicize, and analyze woemn's limited access to power, and their agency as leaders from the grassroots to the national scene, from education to non-profits and business organizations.
