Reflections on international women’s day 2019

One of the things I really value about International Women’s Day every year on 8th March is the sheer amount of interesting research published. However, one of the challenges is keeping track due to sheer volume that is launched on IWD. I’m fortunate to have a committed eco-system of  research fiends who share anything interesting that comes their way with me. So here’s my attempt to list some of the most interesting research from IWD 2019. Caveat – I will admit to a particular bias in this year’s roundup towards women and entrepreneurship as I’m gearing up to launch my own business – Wise Sherpa – and I’ve become increasingly involved in this space through working as part of a number of accelerators.

Let me know if you have anything you’d like to add to the list and enjoy!
