Women Leaders in Higher Education

The purpose of this project is to investigate the issues which impact on the careers of women. The research builds upon earlier Ashridge research that investigated the subject of women in business, and which identified a number of different strategies for individuals and organisations to help build women's careers. The aim of this project is to identify useful and practical tools and techniques for women and for employers. This research will also contribute to the ongoing debate about the lack of women at senior level, and seek to make appropriate recommendations.
