Scholars interested in participating should submit an abstract (750 words) to the editors and conference organizers by November 1, 2017 to the conference website ( Authors whose abstract proposals are accepted in December will be invited to develop their papers for the Leadership Excellence and Gender in Organizations Research to Practice Conference sponsored by the Krannert School of Management and the Susan Bulkeley Butler Center for Leadership Excellence at Purdue University and the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University and other sponsors.

The conference will be held in West Lafayette, Indiana near Indianapolis in March 2018.  This conference will bring together scholars from multiple business disciplines and stakeholders from corporations with a goal of strengthening each individual paper submitted in terms of both theory development and practical implications for working managers. In addition to participating in paper presentation and author feedback sessions, attendees will be able to attend plenary research to practice panels featuring leading scholars and senior corporate leaders from companies such as Rolls Royce and Ernst & Young who are working on gender and women’s issues in business, as well as social events.
