Senior Lecturer

Liza Howe-Walsh


My international experience has lead to research interests into the development of leaders and in particular the development of women in leadership roles. I am an Aurora role model and support several women through mentoring in the UK and Middle East within HE and broader society.

I am a certified trainer for the Kozai Group's Global Competencies Index (GCI) an assessment tool to examine personality predispositions associated with effective intercultural behaviour and dynamic global managerial skills.

I gained extensive international HR management and consultancy experience, following a commercial career in Human Resources for PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as a Global Mobility Solutions Manager as well as consulting for the University. My consulting experience has included the following:

Diveristy in and inclusion strategies for recruitment in Emergency services.

HR strategy development within Europe, Middle East, USA and Canada.

Assessing global competencies to develop future women leaders in the Middle East.

Workshops to develop women's career progression in STEM.

I have widely published in top tier journals including Studies in Higher Education, International Journal of HRM, Journal of Business Research and Journal of International Management.

My research interests have two main threads that often converge, global mobility and gender.

Her main research interests include Global Leadership Competencies, Gender, Repatriation, Self Initiated Expatriates and HR policy and practice.
