Leeds University Business School has created a mini-series for its Research and Innovation Podcast to mark International Women’s Day 2021. In this introductory episode, Professors Edgar Meyer and Jennifer Tomlinson highlight some of the important and impactful research going on at the Business School by female colleagues, and some of the research that addresses gender equality and inequality. They also discuss what the Business School is doing to achieve gender equality, particularly through the Athena Swann charter.
