For Faculty

Funding Available for Faculty Research

One of the goals of the Center for Women in Business is to be the repository of research and information about women in business, so we provide seed money for TWU faculty to conduct research about women innovators and business owners.

Current Projects

Dr. Jason Lambert, College of Business; Dr. Gabrielle Smith, Department of Psychology and Philosophy; and Dr. Paul Yeatts, Center for Research Design and Analysis, will investigate how individual factors affect the relationship between perceived token experience and attitudes of women job seekers. The researchers also aim to better understand the experience and challenges successful women face in the workplace and what personal traits they possess or strategies they use to overcome them and will construct and introduce a new scale to measure token awareness.

Dr. Lee Warren Brown and Dr. Jason Lambert of the College of Business will examine how the ethical disposition of nurses and administrators in leadership positions affect perceived ethical climate, employee bullying behavior, intentions to quit and organizational commitment. The study also aims to investigate any difference between men and women leaders, and intra-group differences among women leaders in nursing positions.

Dr. Jasmine Ward of Health Studies will conduct an assessment of the professional development needs of black women in public health.

In addition, the CWB recently supported a research project by Dr. Pushkala Raman of the College of Business that sought to understand what women want in their ideal workplace. Dr. Raman was a guest columnist for the Denton Record Chronicle in which she detailed the conclusions of her research.
