NEWL New York

Sue Faerman is the Academic Chair of the Center for Women in Government & Civil Society’s Women’s Leadership Academy and a Distinguished Teaching Professor Emerita at the University at Albany. Before retiring from the University at Albany in 2016, she served as Vice Provost and Dean for Undergraduate Education (1999-2013) and Dean of University at Albany’s College of Computing and Information (2013-2015). Her teaching and research interests have focused primarily on the paradoxical nature of managerial and organizational performance, and issues related to leadership development. More recently, her research interests have centered on issues related to women and leadership and work-life interactions. She has authored or co-authored several books, articles, and book chapters that develop the notion of paradox in managerial or organizational performance, most notably Becoming a Master Manager: A Competency Framework (6th edition) (John Wiley & Sons, 2015) and “Embracing Paradox in Management: The Value of the Competing Values Framework,” which appears in Organization Management Journal (Arsenault and Faerman, 2014); and is currently working on a framework that presents work-life interactions from a paradox perspective.
