Research

Part of the reason women are still under-represented in leadership roles across the world is because of a disconnect between much current activity in the diversity and inclusion world and what research evidence says is truly effective.

This disconnect exists because those who generate evidence and those who use it are often speaking different languages (academic or technical vs 'human'), working to different timescales, and moving in different networks. They are also dotted around the world, meaning that we overlook solutions that exist in other countries.

To help achieve our vision, GIWL's research priorities include four major work streams:

  • What works to support women's careers
  • Media representations of women leaders
  • The Global Gender and Leadership Index
  • The impact of women political leaders

GIWL ANU is currently developing an exciting program of research and affiliate arrangements that will incorporate a particular focus on our local Asia-Pacific region.

We are actively seeking expressions of interest for PhD students, post-doc positions and visiting fellows.

If you are interested in partnering with GIWL at ANU on research or other ways to accelerate change, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us.
