The Gender and Enterprise Network (GEN) invites both new and more established scholars to attend a forthcoming ‘Confreat’ (conference/retreat) on 17th and 18th of July 2017 at the Sylvia Pankhurst Gender Research Center, Manchester Metropolitan University.
The primary focus of this event is to participants to develop working papers for a conference or journal publication. This will mainly take place through feedback on papers and guidance from a prestigious team of established entrepreneurship academics, with both qualitative and quantitative research backgrounds.
During the two-day event, participants will:
- Receive personalised feedback and guidance on their working papers.
- Reflect upon the theoretical contributions of their research in the area of gender and
- Learn how to write successful grant applications.
- Engage with a unique network of internationally recognised scholars as well as early career researchers in the area of gender and entrepreneurship.
Plans are in the works for an exciting Gender Theory event organised by Prof Julia Rouse and Dr Angela Martinez Dy, featuring a number of well regarded critical realist gender theorists, to be held at Loughborough University London in April 2017. Watch this space!
We at GEN wish you a joyful and relaxing festive season!
All the best for 2017 and beyond.
Gender in Management Special Issue: Gender and Entrepreneurship in Cross Cultural Perspectives
Professor (Dr.) Ramanjeet Singh, Amity University, India

Dr Hima Bindu Kota, Amity University, India
The relation between gender and entrepreneurship is a well-researched and a very contemporary topic. Henry (2013), Shinnar and Giacomin (2012), Boyd (2005), Díaz-García, Jiménez-Moreno (2010), Lerner and Pines (2010), Gupta, Turban and Wasti (2009), Wilson, Pines & Schwartz (2008), Kickul and Marlino (2007), Verheul et al, (2006),Bruni, Gherardi and Poggio (2004), Mueller (2004), Hielman and Chen (2003), Muravyev (2007), Fischer, Reuber and Dyke (1985) are some of the researchers who have studied this area extensively.
Though the relation between gender and entrepreneurship is a well-cited topic, this special issue focuses on Cross Cultural Perspectives.
There are several studies examining cross-cultural aspects of entrepreneurs (Gupta and Fernandez, 2009; Mueller and Thomas, 2001), gender and entrepreneurship (Thébaud, 2010), gender stereotypes and entrepreneurship (Gupta, Turban and Wasti, 2009).
However, limited researchers like that of Mueller and Dato-on (2010) are found studying the gender stereotypes and entrepreneurship in cross cultural perspectives.
Therefore, this special issue will make original contribution to this area.
This special edition, Gender and Entrepreneurship in Cross Cultural Perspectives, endeavours to provide an international platform to academicians, research scholars and practioners from across the world to contribute their scholarly research and to lead in the advancement of inter-disciplinary research of gender studies, entrepreneurship and cross-cultural management, for the benefit of academia, business and society at large, by publishing theoretical, empirical, experimental and applied research.
This aim will be met by getting scholarly research contributions from good researchers in the various areas of management.
