Call for Papers - Gender in Management: An International Journal

Theorizing Women & Leadership. Different spaces, different conversations: theories and practices for these times.

Special Issue Editors:

Professor Carole Elliott, Roehampton Business School; Sue Pritchard, University College London; Dr Valerie Stead, Lancaster University Management School

Paper submissions by FRIDAY 29th October 2017

The editors of the Special Issue have been involved in a global initiative to develop theory around women’s leadership, and hosted a 2-day conference in May 2017 that extends this work. The May 2017 conference ‘Theorizing Women & Leadership. Different spaces, different conversations: theories and practices for these times’ followed previous seminars and conferences, initiated at the women and leadership colloquium held at Utah Valley University in May 2014. In May 2016, Carole Elliott and Sharon Mavin hosted a SAMS-sponsored think tank ‘Developing women’s leadership: theory and practice’, at Roehampton Business School.

The emergence of this special issue is motivated by the lacuna of research in business and leadership that explicitly seeks to theorize women’s leadership, particularly with regard to the intersectionality of women’s leadership with alternative forms of organizing.

The call for papers for the special issue is in association with the ‘Theorizing Women & Leadership. Different spaces, different conversations: theories and practices for these times’ conference. The conference design was intended to develop and progress themes from the theorizing women and leadership global network, and deliberately engaged with the experiential to explore alternative modes of theory development. We anticipate that this will encourage critically reflexive submissions that grapple with the inter-subjectivity of theory development processes, including the relationship between women’s leadership, space and place. The conference was also concerned with exploring the intersectionality of women’s leadership with new ways of organizing and acting for political and social change, emerging from the questions "leadership of/for what….?”

Aims

In the context of concerns about gender equality and social justice, the ways in which women professionals and leaders learn how to become leaders (Stead, and Elliott, 2013), do leadership and develop leadership remains empirically and theoretically under-developed.  The special issue editors have a particular concern for progress theorizing around women’s leadership with the deliberate intent to include the voices of women in leading roles from a range of occupational and organizational settings and contexts.
