"Gender equality - like clean air - is a public good that benefits us all."
- Shelley Correll, Faculty Director
The VMware Women's Leadership Innovation Lab at Stanford University generates foundational research to advance women's leadership by diagnosing barriers, developing and evaluating interventions to get beyond barriers, and disseminates research-based solutions by bridging the gap between research and practice. More about us
Many well-intentioned efforts have been made to increase the number of women in leadership. However, progress has stalled to the point that achieving gender equality seems like an insurmountable challenge. The Lab strives to generate evidence-based solutions to advancing gender equality, equality that is critical to innovation and to solving the most pressing social problems of our time. Our work focuses on removing gender biases in organizational processes and workplace cultures. We accelerate the pace of change by partnering with external groups, collaborating with leading organizations and change agents across sectors.
