What we do

The Erasmus Centre for Women and Organisations (ECWO) is committed to women’s continued advancement into leadership positions across multiple sectors – in large and small private companies as well as public and private not-for-profit organisations.

Our mission is to make a meaningful contribution to management education, the gender debate, and making an impact on gender in the workplace.

We plan to achieve this by contributing to management education pedagogy and content, through actively engaging in the gender debate, and by having direct impact on gender balance in the workforce. Women are innovative, creative and intelligent, and through collaboration, shared challenges, encouragement, and empowering others, they collectively master leadership, build teams, improve communication, and make senior management diversity a reality.

Our goals are to:

  • Develop and provide education programmes for pre- and post-graduate students, and executives
  • Identify and address ongoing challenges to the progression and retention of women to the highest levels of organisations in the private and public sector
  • Undertake and facilitate collaborative high-quality applied and academic research.


Coaching can help you to reach your goals – professionally or personally – and helps you acquire the skill set and mindset you need to move forward in your life and career.
