Closing the Gender Gap in Leadership: Using Research to Inform Practice

Project description

Focussing on the force of female leadership

Highly educated and skilled female professionals make excellent leaders. Even so, despite efforts from institutions such as the United Nations or European Commission, there is still a substantial underrepresentation of women in leadership positions. An understanding of the importance of interpersonal leadership skills could change this. The EU-funded WOMLEAD project aims to research women’s advantages in the case of business leadership competencies. It will study the role of soft skills in increased customer services, positive results of servant leadership and altruistic values for the growth and well-being of businesses. Women’s leadership will be strengthened by disseminating the research findings widely, holding business seminars, and establishing a Women’s Leadership Centre at the University of Seville.
