Laidlaw Foundation and LBS partnership propels women in business. The Laidlaw Women’s Leadership Fund supports 20 outstanding female MBA, EMBA and Masters in Management scholars per year for three years.
Made possible from a £3.69 million gift from the Laidlaw Foundation, the fund will create a dynamic network of female peers at LBS and beyond.
The Laidlaw Women’s Leadership Fund strengthens our ambition of moving towards 51% female representation across degree programmes, in particular the number of women from socio-economically diverse backgrounds. The fund aims to attract the highest calibre women who might otherwise have been unable to afford a top-tier business education.
Significant progress has already been made towards addressing the gender balance at LBS. With this investment, the School further strengthens our efforts to achieve gender parity.
