Women Leaders Case Series

The Women Leaders Case Series includes teachable case studies about real women leading people and organizational development. Fulfilling the mission of global impact in classrooms all over the world set by WLI Research Director and editor of this ongoing series, Dr. Amanda Bullough, all cases in the Women Leaders Case Series are available for free.

Each case is appropriate for existing or aspiring business leaders who want to learn effective management and leadership skills by learning from the example of another female business leader.

These cases are also appropriate for graduate or undergraduate students in classes that discuss organizational management, leadership, small business entrepreneurship, and/or civic and non-profit leadership. Each case includes an accompanying teaching note to guide future instructors adopting the case for their students by offering teaching strategies, suggested readings and student comment examples. These cases vary in length and are relevant for a broad audience of learners.

WLI Womens Leaders Case Series cases are available for free download from the Case Centre website.

For more information or to contribute content for the series, contact Dr. Amanda Bullough at bullough@udel.edu.

The Case Centre

The Case Centre, the largest distributor of cases in the world with the most diverse collection, indexes and publicizes the series, verifies faculty for teaching notes, and tags the cases and the series to other series in the collection (e.g. the UN Sustainable Development Goals). The inaugural batch of 10 cases from Pakistan and Chicago published in 2023 and new cases are added to the series on a regular basis. Future cases published in the series will be authored by a global reach of faculty (and their students), continually building and updating the library of material.
