Who this event is for

  • Academic community


John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus, Gipsy Lane site


The Gender Issues in Business School (GIBS) Network was successfully launched in 2018 at Newcastle University Business School. This initiative responded to the pressing need for affirmative action in mainstreaming gendered perspectives across business and management schools. Building on this, a second event will be run by the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice based at Oxford Brookes Business School (Headington Campus) offering similar opportunities for dissemination and networking.

It is open to all academic disciplines that can contribute to gender knowledge in the context of management, business, organisation, work and employment.

Keynote speakers have been confirmed as Professor Beverly Metcalfe and Professor Elisabeth Kelan, with the Women's Budget Group ECR Network running an interactive workshop, all of which will explore themes of activism, engagement and organisational change.

Attendance is FREE, and lunch/refreshments will be provided.

Who should attend?

Scholars researching gendered topics in business and management schools or allied disciplines, in the UK and overseas. PhD students (at any stage of study) and their supervisors, and early career researchers are particularly encouraged to apply.

Organisers: The workshop is organised by Nancy Aumais, Dr Kate Clayton-Hathway, Eve Ewington, Nosheen Khan, Dr Ana Lopes, Diane McGiffen and Elina Meliou.
