1. de Sousa e Castro Rossetti, Flavia. Analysis of gender and gender-related implicit leadership themes in HR practitioner literature : a comparison of the United States and Brazilian HR practitioner publications.

Degree: MS, 2017, University of Louisville

Among the many factors studied in relation to the women and leadership equality gap are gender stereotypes, implicit leadership theories, and the congruity of gender role expectations (Eagly, & Karau, 2002). Multiple studies in the scholarly literature support the finding that men, rather than women, are more likely to be seen as leaders (Bierma, 2016; Eagly, & Schmidt, 2001), and this finding appears to be robust across some cultures (Schein, 2001). While the scholarly research on women and leadership has been burgeoning, few research studies have investigated how human resource (HR) practitioner literature addresses themes related to women and leadership (Hanscome, & Cervero, 2003). Human Resource processes and practitioner decisions relating to selection and promotion, development opportunities, compensation, performance management, and other employment conditions affect women’s and men’s careers. Likewise, investigating practitioner literature in the United States (U.S.), as well as other countries is a worthwhile endeavor to gain an understanding of themes relating to women and leadership cross-culturally. The purpose of this content analysis study is to investigate themes relating to women and leadership in HR practitioner literature found in the U.S. and Brazil, which has the second largest economy in the Western hemisphere. Findings and implications are explored based on scholarly literature on women and leadership and culture, and themes pertaining to implicit leadership theories and gender stereotypes, role congruity, power relations, and intersectionality. Advisors/Committee Members: Herd, Ann, Vidoni, Carla, Vidoni, Carla, Cumberland, Denise, Alagaraja, Meera.

2. Soder, Paula F. Workplace spirituality and employee work intentions : examining the relationship and the mediating role of ethical leadership.

Degree: PhD, 2016, University of Louisville

This dissertation examined the extent to which workplace spirituality was associated with work intentions, and whether ethical leadership served as a mediator of the relationship between workplace spirituality and work intentions. The study begins with an overview of the significant workplace spirituality literature, and a brief overview of work intentions and ethical leadership. A convenience sample of 405 U.S. based adults, employed full-time were surveyed. Using correlation and path analysis, results from the study showed a positive strong association between workplace spirituality and employee work intentions, and mediation via ethical leadership. The findings of the study provided support for both hypotheses. Workplace spirituality received considerable attention in scholarship and practice over the past two decades (Duchon & Plowman, 2005; Giacalone & Jurkiewicz, 2010). As an emerging concept in contemporary literature (Ashmos & Duchon, 2000; Giacalone & Jurkiewicz, 2003; Stevens, 2008), workplace spirituality is broadly defined as an organization’s recognition that employees have an inner life that nourishes and is nourished by meaningful work, and that takes place in the context of a community (Ashmos & Duchon, 2000). Previous research reported that workplace spirituality was associated with positive benefits for both employees and organizations. This study extended the understanding of the contributions of workplace spirituality, a growing field of study, in the development of positive organizational cultures. Additionally, this study added to the existing body of research in which workplace spirituality is positioned as a construct that might positively affect employee work intentions, and consequently success of the organization and employee well-being.
