Abstract

Despite the strides women have made in higher education, they remain underrepresented in both leadership positions and certain STEM disciplines. Using a feminist phenomenological framework, this paper explores how women in computing—one of the least diverse STEM fields—make meaning of their leadership, providing insight into the way researchers interpret gender inequities in leadership, STEM, and self-ratings.
