Research project: Women professors as intellectual leaders. Funded by the Leadership foundation for higher education

Currently Active: 

This project, funded by the Leadership foundation for higher education, analysed the ways in which women professors define and exercise their role as intellectual leaders and built on conceptual understandings of the role of professors as intellectual leaders with particular reference to the work and identity of women academics. The final report contains recommendations for university leaders and materials produced include case studies of support groups for women academics.

This project explored the ways in which women professors, who currently represent around one fifth of the UK professorship, define their identity and role as intellectual leaders.
