New Journal of Management Education podcast is available!

The Journal of Management Education (JME) has a new podcast available online!

In this podcast, Mary Ann Hazen, Associate Editor of JME at the University of Detroit, interviews Gelaye Debebe, George Washington University, about her article, “Creating a Safe Environment for Women’s Leadership Transformation,” which was published in the October 2011 issue of the Journal of Management Education.

The Abstract:

This study used qualitative data to describe how transformational learning was achieved in a women-only training (WOT) program. The article argues that an environment conducive to transformational learning for women was created from the harmonious coalescing of the presence of all-women participants and instructors with gender-sensitive teaching and learning practices. The integration of these elements created safety and participant willingness to break with habitual patterns. This article contributes to the transformational learning and WOT literatures by proposing a holistic explanation for creating safety and fostering women’s transformational learning in training settings. It also develops an analytic framework that expands current conceptions of the transformational learning process.
