About the Laidlaw Foundation
The Laidlaw Foundation believes that education is the single most powerful tool to break the cycle of poverty and reduce inequality in the world. By funding scholarships for exceptional women to gain degrees at leading business schools like LBS, the Foundation aims to help build the pipeline of future women leaders through access to best-in-class education, resources and global networks.
“Unfortunately, many women reach a glass ceiling, particularly in the corporate world. I am deeply committed to helping more of them break the glass ceiling through expanding access to top business education” - Lord Laidlaw, Chairman of the Laidlaw Foundation
