2019 Conference Theme
Women's Entrepreneurship: Catalyzing Change and Innovation
The Diana Project™ was established in 1999 by Professors Brush, Carter, Gatewood, Greene, and Hart – in partnership with ESBRI in Stockholm – to provide a platform for research and scholarship focusing on women entrepreneurs and their growth. Since then, The Diana Project™ has led the research agenda in women's entrepreneurship across continents, cultures, and contexts. The Diana International Research Conference brings together more than 100 scholars worldwide, providing an annual forum to share global research dedicated to asking and answering questions about women entrepreneurs and how they grow their ventures.
The 2019 Diana International Research Conference will take place June 2nd-June 5th and will be located at Babson College, in Wellesley, MA, USA. We invite participants to consider submitting manuscripts that relate to this year's theme: the ways in which women entrepreneurs are catalyzing change and innovation in their leadership, ventures, societies, and economies. This includes papers investigating new models, approaches, and innovations created by women entrepreneurs for their ventures as well as new models and innovations in ecosystems sparked by the start-up and expansion of women's entrepreneurship globally. Studies examining all units of analysis (individual, team, venture, community, industry, or society) and utilizing any approach and/or methodology are welcome.
We invite papers that broadly fit with the overarching conference theme as well as topics within the scope of the Diana International Research Conference related to gender and entrepreneurship. Submissions of abstracts are welcome from August 23, 2018 to December 15, 2018.
