Leadership cultures

Are Higher Education Institutions characterised by discernible leadership cultures? Can these be said to be 'masculinised' and if so what does that mean? What are the concrete features of our cultures of leadership and who are and are not privileged by these? What are the contours and characteristics of the cultures of leadership that operate at our institutions and how does this relate to the wider structuring of institutional cultures rooted in inequalities of 'race', class, gender, ethnicity and so on? A large body of work suggests that institutional leadership plays a significant role in inculcating particular cultures and practices, in privileging some ways of being over others.
