Promoting Girls' Leadership Development in Secondary Schools
MetadataShow full metadata
Leadership programs and services have burgeoned over the past decade to encourage greater representation in leadership among girls and teens. Yet, little is known about the prevalence and type of girls’ leadership programs or services adopted in secondary schools, whether they are perceived as important or effective by school counselors, or what barriers exist to prevent adoption of such programs. Based on an online survey of 239 school counselors, we explored the promotion of girls’ leadership within the education system. We also offered implications for girls’ leadership promotion in the schools and suggestions for future research.
