Are you interested in learning more about the research process? Do you have 2-5 hours per week to work closely with a member of the faculty? A variety of projects are scheduled for this semester and we would love to work with you. If you are curious, take a look at the descriptions of the research projects currently running in the Management Department that have open spots.
1. Project: Women in entrepreneurship
Description: In this project, we focus on women who are leaving the current economic system to create organizations that authentically serve their own values. Older models of leadership in business and academia are dependent strongly on the values of competition and hierarchy. This leads to a situation where women compete in a work environment that still focuses on masculine virtues while the feminine virtues are undervalued and downplayed. Women end up exhausting themselves trying to compete with men on their terms while feeling incapable of engaging with the powerful resources they have as women. The research assistant’s role will vary based on their skillset and availability, but may include a review of the literature on women in entrepreneurship, website analysis, and coding data. Ideally, the research assistant(s) would be available 2-5 hours per week, although this is flexible.
Desired Skills: Students who are interested in this opportunity and would like to discuss it further should be conscientious, curious, interested in gender studies, and strong writers.
If you are interested in volunteering for this research opportunity, please contact Professor Anne-Laure Winkler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
