INSEAD The Gender Initiative
Gender imbalance and the resultant experience of women in business and society have consequences for both organisations and the communities they serve. Yet the dynamics, causes, and consequences of gender imbalance are not yet fully understood, limiting our ability to enhance gender balance. Built on INSEAD’s core organisational value of diversity and decades of gender diversity efforts, the Gender Initiative integrates research, business, and pedagogy to engage the full potential of both women and men.
Our community of gender researchers includes psychologists, sociologists, economists, and management and finance scholars who conduct cutting-edge research on the experiences and impact of women in business and society. We are building relationships with organisations to enhance their commitment to gender balance and their ability to fulfil this goal. By striving to create a pipeline of future business leaders who are passionate and equipped to drive gender balance within their existing and future organisations, we aim to empower women leaders to positively impact business and society.
Our mission is to create and disseminate knowledge that advances women leaders and optimises their contributions within and beyond their organisations. We strive to engage both men and women in this effort, inspiring all to take action.
