Before COVID-19 our events took place every two months at a London-based university. Meetings would normally run on Friday afternoons with a 15.00 start, followed by dinner to allow for more informal interaction.
Every meeting includes a mix of presentations, focusing on specifc research topics, research methods, career perspectives, publishing and research impact. We also regularly invite female scholars from other countries to broaden the network.
Since COVID-19, we run monthly meetings; all meetings are run online and attended by CYGNA members from all over the world.
If you are interested in being on the mailing list and/or attending our events please contact Anne-Wil Harzing (firstname.lastname@example.org). Feel free to share this information to anyone who might be interested. We also maintain a readings and inspirations section for female academics and have a Twitter hashtag #cygna_london. A quick overview of past presentations can be found here. For a full description of our network see: Celebrating CYGNA: Supporting women in academia. An overview of blogposts of nearly all our meetings is here: CYGNA: Resource collection for the summer holidays.

Meeting 40: 28 May 2021,10.00-12.00: Who ‘does’ scholarly impact: women’s narratives of impact case studies in Business & Management
In this session we will discuss recent research into women’s lived experiences of leading impact case studies as a part of REF requirements, and how women management scholars experience ‘doing’ impact. Together in the discussion we will explore the phenomenon of the gendered production of research impact, we are interested in how traditionally marginalized individuals overcome systems and processes that disadvantage particular scholars within business schools. There will also a be a chance to ask questions about other aspects of the REF, but please watch the video on this before the meeting: CYGNA: REF and Christmas during a pandemic
Previous research on impact case studies by CYGNA members:
- The curious under‐representation of women impact case leaders: Can we disengender inequality regimes?
- Business and Management Impact Assessment in Research Excellence Framework 2014: Analysis and Reflection
Organizer & presenter: Tatiana Andreeva, Maynooth University
We regularly do literature reviews as a part of our research process. Could (and should) these literature reviews be published as a separate piece of work? In this session we will peek behind the curtain of the publication process of several literature review papers and based on this explore what the challenges of publishing literature reviews are and offer some tips how to address them. We will discuss this issue through the different lenses – from a PhD student to an established scholar (and a PhD supervisor).
Organizer: Linn Eleanor Zhang, Loughborough University London
