Our aim in research is to further advance our knowledge of the challenges that women face in the workforce, which will allow us to develop best practices and strategies for employees, management and organizations to improve workplace conditions for these women.

We are interested in better understanding the early career paths of women in management so that we can support them as they face challenges surrounding workplace gender equality.
