Meta-Analysis: Call for Unpublished Data on the Effects of Quotas and Targets for Women in Leadership

The Centre for Ethical Leadership is currently conducting a meta-analysis focussing on the use and the effects of establishing targets or quotas for women in leadership roles.

We are in the process of conducting an exhaustive search of the published literature, and are now making a call to gather any remaining findings that are unpublished, or soon to be published. We are also interested in unpublished thesis data. Specifically, we are interested in studies that explore one or more of the following outcome factors

  1. The effects of quotas/targets on the numbers or proportions of female leaders in organisational units, organisations or industries;
  2. The effects of quotas/targets on the performance, attitudes or any other outcomes related to the female leader selected when targets/quotas are in place for females;
  3. The effects of quotas/targets on the performance, attitudes levels of support or any other factors related to the colleagues of female leader when targets/quotas are in place; 
  4. The effects of quotas/targets on any other factors or characteristics of the organisations, industries or businesses that implement them.

If you believe your study qualifies for inclusion, we are requesting details about the characteristics of your sample, and then the associated means and variability (i.e., SD/SE). The associated effects sizes are also desirable.

You can contribute your unpublished data by following the link below:


Alternatively, you can email Joel Anderson, at janderson@ormond.unimelb.edu.au with the details of your data, or with any other questions pertaining to our meta-analysis.

Deadline for submitting: December 31, 2014

Meta-analysis social power: Call for (unpublished) studies

We are in the process of preparing a meta-analysis on the cognitive and behavioral effects of social Power, and are trying to find unpublished studies or published studies that may not come up in a digital literature search.

We wish to include studies examining the cognitive and behavioral effects of having high social power (vs. having low power, or no power, or unknown power). These include studies in which (real life) power differences are measured as well as (experimental) studies in which power differences are manipulated.

As dependent variables, we are particularly interested in finding studies that assess cognitive effects of social power, including information processing, risk estimations (in relation to decision making), and stereotyping or objectification in person perception. In addition, we wish to collect studies examining behavioral effects of social power, including self-interested vs. other-focused (caring, helping) behavior, action orientation, and risk taking.

If you have conducted a study on social power that meets these criteria, please submit your contact information and upload a PDF containing relevant study details through the following link: https://uleidenss.eu.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_09hkTUvji9jzLmZ

Special Issue of Leadership Quarterly on Gender and Leadership

Alice Eagly, Northwestern Unversity
Madeline Heilman, New York University

Among researchers across many academic fields, attention to the effects of gender on leadership has escalated in the past twenty years.  Web of Knowledge thus reports that the topic identified by combining leader/leadership with gender yielded only 17 published articles in 1990 but 346 articles in 2012. The overriding question addressed by most authors remains why women are not better represented in leader roles. This question can be partitioned into many specific questions concerning, for example, the leadership styles and traits of female and male leaders and prejudicial reactions to female leaders. Researchers in many academic fields have contributed to these and many topics.

Consistent with Leadership Quarterly’s identity as “An International Journal of Political, Social and Behavioral Science,” the aim of the special issue is to take stock of what is known about gender and leadership across science fields. This forum is intended to give readers wide exposure to scholarship on gender and leadership. Therefore, in this special issue, we particularly welcome focused reviews of empirical research on particular topics within the broad area of gender and leadership. Sample topics include the following:

  • Does stereotype threat deter women from becoming leaders?
  • Are men more ambitious than women for leader roles?
  • Are potential women leaders targets of prejudice and discrimination?
  • Do women leaders experience backlash for their directive behaviors?
  • How do gender and race interact in influencing access to leader roles and reactions to leaders?
  • Do women generally follow different paths than men in attaining leader roles?
  • Do female leaders have different goals than male leaders?
  • What are the effects of establishing quotas for women in leadership roles?
  • Do women tend to advocate for different policies than men do when holding political office?
  • Have media representations of female leaders changed in recent decades?
  • Under what circumstances have women emerged as heads of state?  

Answering these or other questions will communicate research on gender and leadership, in its many traditions and fields of study, to a wide audience of interested readers. The deadline for submitting manuscripts though the Elsevier submission portal (http://ees.elsevier.com/leaqua/) is 31 March 2015. Submissions should have no more than 35 pages of text. Authors invited to revise their papers should expect to resubmit by 31 October 2015, with final submissions due approximately 1 December 2015. The special issue will be published in the summer of 2016.

Leadership Quarterly Special Issue Call for Proposals

Collective and Network Approaches to Leadership

Guest Editors: Kristin L. Cullen & Francis J. Yammarino

This special issue invites submissions that examine the formal and informal leadership of and underlying collectives, networks, and systems. Substantial progress in theory development regarding how collectives engage in leadership has occurred, with approaches emphasizing the importance of informal leadership, which can emerge or reside in systems and network connections among people with shared work. Greater testing and theory refinement is needed. Empirical articles employing rigorous quantitative or qualitative methods with a focus on collective leadership, leadership networks, or leaders understanding and use of networks and systems for collective leadership are welcome as submissions to this special issue as are exemplary theoretical, conceptual, narrative review and methodological papers. The relationship between networks and systems and individual leader's success is not the focus of the special issue. However, articles addressing leader's role in building collective leadership through the development of networks and systems as well as articles examining collective leadership and leadership networks and their development and consequences are welcome. Manuscripts that connect formal and collective leadership and studies that take a longitudinal perspective with a focus on collective leadership development are of particular interest.

Deadline for submission of manuscripts is February 1, 2015.

The corresponding author should register in the system and then submit the manuscript on behalf of all the authors of the manuscript. Please make sure that when submitting to the system, authors select the article type for the Special Issue on Collective and Network Approaches.
