Eliminating Biases in Portrayals of Women Leaders & Entrepreneurs

Nathalie Duval-Couetil, MBA, PhD

Society is searching for ways to increase women’s involvement in leadership and entrepreneurship as a means to contribute to the growth of our economy. This involves developing programs designed to eliminate barriers and biases to make organizations and networks more inclusive. This presentation examines the role we all play in determining the best way to create “separate but equal” initiatives directed at women without reinforcing gender stereotypes while doing so.

Speaker Bio:

Nathalie Duval-Couetil is the Director of the Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program, Associate Director of the Burton D. Morgan Center, and an Associate Professor in the Department of Technology Leadership and Innovation at Purdue University. She is responsible for the launch of the university’s multidisciplinary entrepreneurship program, which involves over 1800 students each year. For undergraduates, she has established courses and experiential initiatives focused on entrepreneurship fundamentals, venture development, professional development, and women and leadership. At the graduate level, she co-teaches a technology commercialization course called “Life of a Faculty Entrepreneur: Discovery, Development and Translation.”

Nathalie’s research focuses on entrepreneurship pedagogy and assessment; entrepreneurship education and STEM; student intellectual property policy; graduate student professional development; and women and leadership. This work has been funded through grants from the National Science Foundation, Burton D. Morgan Foundation, Kern Foundation and VentureWell. She has also worked on entrepreneurship capacity building projects with international partners.

Prior to academia, Nathalie worked in the field of market research and strategy consulting in Europe and the U.S. with Booz Allen and Hamilton and Data and Strategies Group. She received a BA from UMass Amherst, an MBA from Babson College, and MS and PhD degrees from Purdue University. She serves on the board of the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship (USASBE) and has held leadership roles in other professional organizations.
