It is our pleasure to invite you to the guest talk by Prof. Sandra Acker (University of Toronto, Canada) and Prof. Anne Wagner (University of Nipissing, Canada) at the zhb Higher Education Research Colloquium Series. On Wednesday, 25 November 2020, Prof. Acker and Prof. Wagner will hold a talk titled "'Yes, but not that kind of leader': Women heading research projects in the Canadian academy talk about their work".

Sandra Acker and Anne Wagner move beyond conventional understandings of university leadership based on hierarchical structures, and consider alternative forms of leadership such as being principal investigator for a research project in order to understand leadership roles of women and female conceptualizations of leadership in universities.
