Our Contribution to a Global Conversation
The Pepperdine Graziadio Center for Women in Leadership engages in empirical and conceptual research on the status of women in positions in leadership and opportunities to influence the world around them. This includes the provision of grants and the Faculty Research Symposium, which kicked off in Fall 2015 and provides a platform for faculty across all five schools to present gender-related research.
