Leadership and Women in Statistics
Edited by Amanda L. Golbeck, Ingram Olkin and Yulia R. Gel
Chapman & Hall Press, ISBN13:978-1-4822-3644-6; xvi + 456 pages
This is an edited volume of 27 chapters on a broad range of topics relating to leadership, with special emphasis on women. With the growth of data science in almost every field of application, statisticians need to take a leadership role. This should not come as a surprise because statisticians have a long history of leadership in agriculture (design of experiments), in engineering (acceptance sampling), in medicine (random clinical trials), in education (tests and measurement) and many more fields. How can women participate in this growth? This book provides guidelines that will be helpful for both women and men in their professional path. The editors Amanda Golbeck, Ingram Olkin, and Yulia Gel have succeeded in obtaining thoughtful—and, at times, personal—discussions by leaders in different work environments: government, industrial, and academic, from multi-cultural perspectives, and from different work priorities. This is a book you will want to keep on your shelf and refer to over and over again as you develop your leadership in the course of your career.
