dc.description.abstractThere are many studies on leadership styles, communication dimensions of leadership, and best practices in leadership communication. There is, however, limited research on the relationships between leadership and identity; for example, on those aspects defined by race and gender. This study will examine already established research and theories on leadership, race, and gender to explore specific connections between leadership and a leader’s various identities. Interviews were conducted with 29 young professionals who have been in the workforce for less than 10 years and are engaged in leadership roles. The research will examine how social and cultural identities influence perceived leadership styles and perceptions of leadership practice. This study attempts to contribute to relevant research by providing an in-depth exploration of the relationship between two growing areas of study in communication research and pointing to next steps for future research studies.
