Academic leadership may increase representation by actively defining leadership roles for women and other marginalized groups of society.  Strategies to achieve multicultural leadership in academic institution may empower women in decision-making by analyzing risks of ineptness to declines in the influence of education.   Academic leadership may need to garner support for these causes.  Wekullo and Musoba (2020) identify many public research institutions require outside support to achieve their public goals.

Prediction based on trends may lose accuracy with the complexity and hastiness of contemporary issues disregarded in recent times.  History as a guide may not be always exclusive when read into a world of exclusion.  Representation serves justice but achieves progress.  Winchester and Browning (2015) describe persistent gender equity gaps in overrepresentation of certain fields and student support areas and underrepresentation in research.  Mayanja (2020) apply the ladder of citizen participation model to address gender equity in higher education.  Black women who have been historically underserved may require the greatest effort to achieve equity.  Stephens, Curry, and Stephens (2021) review strategies for community based organization service providers to support self-advocacy of needed services for Black women with health issues.
