2017 Diana Conference

2017 Diana International Research Conference Call for Abstracts
Kauffman Foundation, Kansas City, Missouri
October 1-3, 2017

Theme: Programs, Policies, & Practices around High-Growth Women’s Entrepreneurship

The Diana Project was established in 1999 by Professors Brush, Carter, Gatewood, Greene, and Hart – in partnership with ESBRI in Stockholm. The Diana Project has led the research agenda in women’s entrepreneurship across continents, cultures, and contexts. During these years, Diana conferences have annually brought together more than 100 scholars from 16 different countries worldwide, providing an arena to share a global research agenda dedicated to answering questions about women entrepreneurs, and growth-oriented businesses.

We invite papers that broadly fit with the overarching themes of the conference, and seek contributions based on rigorous research that explores how programs, policies, and practices around high-growth entrepreneurship can be understood and studied with gender perspectives. We also invite papers on other topics within the scope of the Diana International Research Conference related to gender and entrepreneurship. Submitted papers may be conceptually or empirically based, and employ quantitative or qualitative methods.

The 2017 Diana International Conference will take place October 1-3, 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri, at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
