The aim of the competition is to encourage and promote the development of high-quality teaching case material which positively represents women in leadership positions in the workplace.  Here are the case writing competition judging criteria:
  • Cases should have a female protagonist
  • Her characteristics as a leader should be described in a positive way
  • There should be a general balance of genders across the characters in the paper. (This does not need to be precise although an approximate range of between 60:40 either way is considered balanced)
  • The female protagonist should speak to another woman about the business
  • Ideally, the industry or setting of the case should not fall into one of the “Four F” categories: food, family, fashion and furniture. This is not a mandatory requirement.
