Women's Leadership Initiative: research

The Wo+Men's Leadership Initiative promotes cutting edge, academically rigorous and practically relevant research focused on gender issues in businesses - large public and government corporations, SMEs as well as entrepreneurship. The WLI also promotes academic and practitioner forums and conferences on gender issues and host top global research scholars to foster research collaborations. The aim of such research is to both generate significant academic knowledge and to provide valuable guidance to organisations on new and innovative ways to unleash female leadership potential in their organisations and industries.
