Women's Leadership in India



In this session I will present the research findings of my work that deal with women’s leadership In India

Whether leadership happens at the helm of organisations or within organisations, leadership among women presents an unique opportunity for women in traditional patriarchal societies to control their own lives and not be subject to oppressive male dominated institutions and legacies.  I will combine my findings from three research projects that explore women’s leadership in non-profit organisations, for-profit organisations and in micro finance. 

My research undertaking exploring issues related to women’s empowerment and leadership in India required both quantitative and qualitative research as well as case studies to understand how and if women pursue leadership opportunities and the challenges they face.
