IWD Podcast: Matters that affect women in the workplace

Research and innovation

Dr Kathryn Watson has a background in both academia and business, and manages research impact and engagement for Leeds University Business School. Kathryn was the Principal Investigator on the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC)-funded project ‘Raising the Ceiling on Diversity and Inclusion: A Corporate Retail Case Study’ working with a major UK retailer. Recently, she has conducted research on ethnic minority inclusion and career progression in policing. Jackie Ford is Professor of Leadership and Organisation Studies at Durham University Business School. She has long-standing frustrations with much research on leadership, especially the absent recognition of power, inclusivity and social justice, and through her research she seeks to unsettle dominant understandings.
