The Academy (formerly the Academy for Women, Diversity and Leadership) is a dynamic research hub focused on exploring relationships between gender, work and leadership and their impact on individuals, organisations and society.

Based in the Department of Leadership and Management at Lancaster University Management School, the Academy aims to connect scholars working in these areas both at Lancaster and beyond, to develop networks at national and international level, to showcase and stimulate ground-breaking and impactful research and to promote knowledge-sharing amongst scholars and practitioners through events seminars and workshops.
