A Narrative Inquiry of the Perceptions Leading to the Under-Representation of Women’s Political Leadership

The theory of Measuring the Intensity of Perception was put into a deconstruction theoretical framework to show that there are five subconscious displaced thought processes that contribute to leadership decisions that follow a predictable path.  For women to triumph over oppressive factors influenced by perception, requires grit-inspired decision-making and action to rise above perception through structure decisions (Verloo, 2013; Duckworth, Peterson, Matthews, and Kelly, 2007).  The Narrative Inquiry on the Perceptions Leading to the Under-Representation of Women’s Political Leadership provided an important recommendation regarding studying the intensity of perception. The interactive presentation was designed to provide audience with the opportunity to explore the construct of measuring the intensity of perception by discussing the findings of the study, gaining input from session participants, and identifying next steps in the process of developing an instrument to measure the intensity of perception. The information gathered will be important to leadership and support improvements in the structures in place in the decision-making holding leadership accountable for decisions.
