- This volume is a collection of writings by African American, Asian American, Latina, Pacific Islander, and Native American women who share their experiences working within the field of social work, describing their rise to leadership and their efforts to maintain authority. Emphasizing themes of social change and justice, these narratives make visible the unique challenges faced by leaders and administrators of color, an issue that continues to affect women within the field today. The essays specifically examine concerns and techniques facilitating the development of women of color as leaders within the social work profession. Their lessons inform future research, policy, and practice and are sure to enhance scholarship on diversity. Altogether, these contributors prove that culturally based paradigms of leadership, historically devalued and suppressed, are crucial to women on the rise.
