Abstract/Description

The contemporary landscape of the United States has been dominated by leaders that fit a social norm that is both homogeneously male and Eurocentric. This landscape is not conducive towards an egalitarian and just society, and endangers the perpetuation of an institution that is assembled only for those who maintain power. By examining research literature, historical contexts and by talking to community present in Marin County, this research aims to understand what truly constitutes a leader and the role it can play in making the true leaders of tomorrow.
