Yousaf and Schmiede (2017) reviewed obstacles to representation of women in leadership of higher education institutions.  Dominguez-Villegas, Smith-Doerr, Renski, and Sekarasih (2020) described gender pay gaps for faculty in higher education.  The hurdle for which academic labour markets must ascend over is the assignment of women to positions of leadership in academia.

Through leadership, women in academia can make changes necessary to achieve participation of the labour force.  The struggles nations face globally today or the products of stubbornness to address the recent history of management.  Managing through emerging conflicts relies on an emergence of a broader conceptualization of problem solving.  The development of unilateral approaches sheds light on underlying cracks in the structure of societies which will not mend themselves.  Scientific approaches to these conflicts delivers productive solutions based on the fundamentals of physics and chemistry.  

The leadership of women in academia provides balance and reduces risks in decisions and planning for academic institutions.  In addressing the diversity of leadership in education, other marginalized groups may also be recognized in representation.  Salas-Velasco (2021) studied the mismatch between educational attainment and career positions for higher education graduates.  Büscher-Touwen, Groot, and Hal (2018) identified a gap between labour market participation of higher education graduates without a disability and with a disability.  Holford (2017) studied preferences in unpaid graduate internships between desirable and potentially exploitive positions for socially privileged and disadvantaged groups.
