What the Future Holds
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-7998-3763-3.ch011
The impetus for this book and the study mentioned was the author's intention to try to close a gap in scholarship related to Hispanic women's experiences and their positions of leadership in higher education. The existing literature did not offer ample information about Hispanic women who have achieved professional success in leadership roles. This chapter contains the preliminary findings that have already been shared in diversity conferences, recommendations, reflections from colleagues who are administrators, professors, and students as a way to address this subject. The author believes information must continue to be shared in order for more voices to arise and whom we can encourage while empowering other Hispanic women/Latinas. It is important to promote support for future strategic efforts among college students, faculty, and diversity fellows from different organizations and community partners across the nation.
