The Leeds School of Business offers many opportunities for women to develop as exceptional leaders, scholars, and community advocates. At Leeds, our goal is gender parity - closing the gap in business education and ultimately in the C-suite. By offering a unique approach to creating an inclusive business environment for all students, Leeds students enter the workforce prepared to shape and influence the future of business in every discipline. Through interdisciplinary programs, comprehensive mentorship and leadership initiatives, and student-led organizations, Leeds provides women with the resources and community needed for success throughout their time at the Leeds School of Business and beyond.
