Women in Strategy Conference


The Strategy Department and the Center for Research in Economics and Strategy (CRES) at the Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis, are hosting a Women in Strategy Workshop on May 9 - 11, 2019.  The workshop will be held in Knight/Bauer Hall, on the beautiful Washington University in St. Louis campus.  

The main objective of the conference is to help pre-tenure female faculty in Strategy to develop career strategies and skills valuable for achieving promotion and tenure.  The ratio of female faculty representation in the strategy field has increased over the years.  However, the rate of female junior professors getting tenure has remained small across strategy departments.  This workshop aims to address this problem by offering a different approach to supporting pre-tenure faculty by providing training for mentoring and coaching to both junior and senior faculty.  It will also create opportunities for pre-tenure female faculty to match and start working with senior mentors for continued professional development.

Participation is by invitation only.
