In the following publication you will find a selection of project summaries and the bios and contact
details of their authors. By focusing on the core messages of these projects we aim to reach you and
other decision makers who do not always have the time to read our often lengthy research papers.
We hope that you will find the projects interesting and relevant for your work. We would like to see
our first publication as a starting point to building more mutually benefiting relationships between
the academic world and the business community, to identifying common interests, and to creating
exchanges that advance our understanding and development of new leadership models and concepts
The key themes of our first edition include the relevance of identity and identification for responsible
leadership, the management of cultural diversity and sexual orientation, and the integration of persons
with disabilities. In the current context of the debate on gender quotas all over Europe, the third part
focuses on gender diversity in the workplace.
