LBS Forum on Women in Leadership: Social Psychological Interventions


June 26, 2015


The plan for the LBS Forum, then, would be to gather academics and industry leaders in the financial services sector concerned with promoting women in leadership roles to: 1) discuss research on social psychological interventions with the leaders in this emerging field; 2) dialogue with them about the particular issues needed to address the problem of women in finance; 3) outline a research agenda to examine the potential impact of social psychological interventions in organizational behavior settings.
