Topeka Small Singleton (Arkansas State University, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-3827-5.ch002
Through leadership experiences that span a 20+ year career in higher education, one Black female attempts to demonstrate how Black women who suffer from imposter syndrome experience leadership and overcome through the power of resilience. Supported by research, the implications from these stories highlight the ever-present hardships, and resiliency, that enable Black women in leadership roles to “press on,” or persevere, despite the syndrome and the professional community that threatens to shut them down. These stories reflect the true inequity that Black women face specifically when they attempt to lead in higher education settings and suggest changes that can be made to change the leadership landscape for Black women.
