The Women, Work & Leadership Research Group (WW&LRG) at the University of Sydney Business School provides a focal point for collaboration between leading scholars, business practitioners and policy makers with an interest in women and work, in building more equitable workplaces and more sustainable careers for women. The WW&LRG engages closely with debates about the megatrends impacting the workforce, including the feminisation of the workforce, population ageing, flexibility and technological change and emerging issues which lead to changing expectations of employers, employees and of the organisation of work.
The Co-Directors of the WW&LRG Professor Marian Baird and Associate Professor Rae Cooper have considerable expertise in undertaking engaged research, and in public speaking and media presentations.

This project will develop a unique University of Sydney-branded online survey and National Report on Australian women’s work futures. The development of new empirical data and academic analysis of women’s career aspirations and the future of women’s work in Australia will establish the University of Sydney as the premier location for research on gender equality in work.

This research builds on an emerging body of work investigating cultural diversity in senior leadership roles in large private sector organisations. In particular it seeks to analyse how culturally diverse the non-executive director cohort of the ASX100 is, as well as to understand the enablers and inhibitors to broader cultural diversity. This scope of research has been prompted by an invitation from the AHRC and the AICD to design a methodology for a pilot project to understand these processes and outcomes.
