Summary Leslie Roman states 'white is a colour too'. Yet the whiteness of educational leaders is rarely questioned, although masculinism—the enduring capacity of different masculinities to remain the norm in leadership—is increasingly under scrutiny. Rarely do white men or women leaders question their whiteness, whereas indigenous and other minority groups, as a consequence of their being 'other than white', are expected to explain their exclusion. Instead, the 'problem' is depicted as the lack of 'the Other', and therefore a problem for and of 'the Other'. This article confronts normative whiteness in educational administration from the perspective of feminist and critical race theory, considering how foregrounding whiteness in leadership is a necessary condition of inclusive education and leadership.
