Dr. Jennifer Petrie will be presenting on the Role of Ethics in Ghanaian Women’s Business Leadership Development. She describes the findings from her mixed methods research study on local business owners and business educators in Ghana. While previous research examines the role of small business entrepreneurs and the glass-ceiling challenges confronting women’s leadership development in Africa, this study examined the important role of ethics in women’s leadership development. This study also seeks to identify educational practices targeting women in business ethics and leadership and describe next steps required to improve ethical leadership development in Ghana and Africa. Dr. Petrie has been conducting research on education, leadership, and women in Ghana since 2010.
