Women and Leadership

DDP and President & Founder Liza Yntema to be Featured in Forthcoming Textbook

In their forthcoming book, Women and Leadership: A Journey Toward Equity, authors Lisa DeFrank Cole and Sherylle J. Tan examine issues related to women and leadership from a variety of perspectives, profiling a diverse group of female leaders, including Marsha P. Johnson, Serena Williams, Dolores

Huerta, Andrea Jung, Judith Heumann, and Greta Thurnburg. Throughout the book, “Leadership in Practice” exercises provide opportunities for readers to hone their leadership skills.

Regarding their decision to feature President & Founder Liza Yntema and DDP, the authors said, “We selected the Dance Data Project® as a nonprofit organization to include in our textbook for several reasons. First, we couldn’t imagine writing a textbook about women and leadership and not including an arts perspective. Second, we are impressed by the entrepreneurial spirit of Elizabeth Yntema and her team. They are bringing less well known–though absolutely needed–information not only to those in the ballet world, but to those of us who study gender equity.”

Women and Leadership is available for pre-order now from Sage Publishing for release later this month.
