Alumna Dissertation Addresses Leadership Philosophy and Praxis of African American Female Foreign Service Officers
Dr. Atim Eneida George has published her dissertation entitled, Generative Leadership and the Life of Aurelia Erskine Brazeal, a Trailblazing African American Female Foreign Service Officer. This scholarship highlights the gap in the literature on generativity and the leadership philosophy and praxis of African American Female Foreign Service Officers (AAFFSOs). The piece addresses this deficit, in part, by engaging an individual of exceptional merit and distinction, Aurelia Erskine Brazeal, as an exemplar of AAFFSOs. Dr. George was a United States diplomat for 30 years serving in Africa and Latin America. Her diplomatic portfolio included work on complex international challenges such as the climate crisis, HIV/AIDS, immigration, human rights, and democratization.
