Honors: Sara Shaw

Sara A. Shaw (Teaching & Learning) was named one of NC State University's sixteen Career & Technical Education (CTE) Research Fellows. The program, sponsored by the ECMC Foundation, provides Fellows with research training, dissemination support, policy education, and professional mentoring opportunities in order to improve student learning, equity, and labor market outcomes related to CTE. 

Shaw, a doctoral student, is conducting research that examines the lived experiences of female leaders from the perspective of females currently in leadership positions in postsecondary education. This project will investigate the intersection of gender, race, ethnicity, age, and socio-economic background and seeks to understand how gender and other social identities affect leadership identities and decision-making of women in postsecondary institutions. This study will have theoretical significance for feminist theory and leadership scholarship, and practical significance for postsecondary institutions' continued cultivation and support of female leaders.
