Women and Leadership: Taking stock and moving forward





The Gender in Management SIG and the Leadership and Leadership Development SIG of the British Academy of Management are pleased to invite you to attend the “Women and Leadership: Taking stock and moving forward” event.

Despite the wealth of research and reports about the ways in which women have and continue to positively transform leadership practice, as well as the increase in the number of women in leadership positions, important challenges still remain. In addition to the overall underrepresentation of women in top leadership positions, women’s leadership styles and practices are subject to continuous scrutiny and negative stereotypes, and they face challenges linked to different forms of gender violence that emerge from gendered understanding of leadership.

In view of the rapid changes to work and workplaces, we need to reflect more insightfully about women in leadership, taking stock of what has been achieved so far and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. This event looks to reflect on the relationship between gender and leadership and how this shapes the experiences of women leaders. In particular, the event looks to bring to the fore ideas about how leadership is embodied, practiced and understood, how this has changed and the implications this has in order for leadership practice to support equal and sustainable dynamics of work and employment in the future.

This event is designed for academics, practitioners, researchers and policy makers. The speakers will be sharing on the relationship between gender and leadership, with a specific focus on women and leadership. Challenges and thoughts to set theory and practice agendas for the new decade will be the focus of the day.
