Are Men Allies or Adversaries to Women’s Career Advancement?
Edited by Ronald J. Burke and Debra A. Major
I have been interested in supporting womenís career development and advancement for over 25 years. My thinking has been influenced by several female colleagues: Tamara Weir, Carol McKeen, Lyn Davidson, Mary Mattis, Susan Vinnicombe and Debra Nelson. I appreciated and benefitted from their support, encouragement and wisdom. This is my second undertaking with Debra Major. Her suggestions greatly improved the collection. Preparation of this collection was supported in part by York University. I thank Carla DíAgostino for her assistance in linking with our contributors, Edward Elgar Publishing, and managing my chapters. A special acknowledgement to Fran OíSullivan at Elgar for her continuing interest and support of our work. I am proud that my son Jeff supports Leanne without reservation, and Brendan does the same for Sharon.
