Redeeming Leadership

Following from the collective wisdoms of anti-racist feminisms, this chapter discusses the ways leadership may be theorised and practised beyond the reinforcement of imperialist, white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal violence. In particular, it explores three ways to ‘do’ leadership theorising and practice differently: decolonising our minds; relating with others; and reimagining leadership. These are not discreet domains of activity, but interconnected processes of social transformation; so that in relating with others, we can collaboratively reimagine leadership, and by reimagining dominant constructions of leadership, it will more readily enable us to decolonise our minds.
