Untapped Potential? Appreciating the Administrative Assistant

Extract from the attached text:

Consider the academic administrative assistant (AA)—who used to be called the department secretary. Always underpaid, often under-appreciated, sometimes completely unnoticed, your AA is actually a linchpin in the college’s organizational machinery. These women— nearly all of them are, in fact, women—work at the administrative center of a department, are available all day long, and are intimately familiar with allocations of time, space, money, supplies, and positions—in short, with the material realities of power, of getting things done. Therefore, good AAs are invaluable.
