Gender Diversity in the Boardroom on Private Equity Placements in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

We address two main questions: (1) Do firms with greater gender diversity on their boards benefit from a reduction in the cost of private equity placements (PEPs)? That is, do they benefit from a reduction in wealth effects? (2) Do firms with greater gender diversity on their boards enjoy higher proceeds for PEPs? Moreover, we also investigate the moderating effects of PEP regulation change on relationship of board gender diversity and private equity placements (PEPs). Greater board gender diversity reduces the cost of PE offers and increases the proceeds from PEPs. Hence, firms with a gender diversified boardroom help to reduce the loss of wealth of the non-participating shareholders. In addition, independent female directors appear to be more beneficial to PE issuing firms than female executive directors, which supports the information asymmetry story and agency theory. However, regulation change was even helpful to decrease cost of PEPs in firms with male only board of directors. Institutional theory explains how normative behavior patterns are maintained or changed between organizations and their environments at industry and societal levels in this study. Upper echelons-UET, the resource dependence, organizational and Social capital theories explore how gender diversity of board room help for PEPs. This study explores for more theoretical perspectives on women on boards by analyzing the tensions between institutional theory and other different theoretical perspectives of gender diversity. From a practical perspective, our study suggests that greater gender diversity at the corporate board level produces positive financial and governance outcomes. Findings of this study also provide positive implications for improving gender fairness on the job market in China.

This book is about women directors in China and India. The aim of the book is to understand more clearly where women are present on corporate boards, and the reasons for their continued absence from most listed company boards. The Glass Ceiling in Chinese and Indian Boardrooms is written at a time of increasing awareness, particularly in Europe, of the benefits of gender equity at the boardroom table, and of the costs of women’s continued exclusion from corporate decision-making. Norway’s gender equity legislation has now been instrumental in ensuring that women occupy over 40% of all company board seats in that country. France, Italy and Spain are amongst those countries now following the same path towards equity. But Asia in general, and the world’s two largest nations in particular, still lag well behind. In China while women enjoy greater social and economic equality than many of their sisters in other parts of Asia, the male-dominated nature of the Party-state apparatus makes it unlikely that legislative change will be achieved any time soon. In India, while the country’s 2013 Corporations Law now requires all major listed firms to have at least one woman director, the real challenges for women are social and economic, where much work remains to be done. Based on detailed surveys of 1,000 key listed firms in India and China Provides results from empirical questionnaire surveys of key firms Analyses the importance of board diversity in a rapidly changing world, and its significance for economic and environmental stability

This edited collection provides a structured and in-depth analysis of the current use of quota strategies for resolving the pressing issue of gender inequality, and the lack of female representation on corporate boards. Filling the gap in existing literature on this topic, the two volumes of Gender Diversity in the Boardroom offers systematic overviews of current debates surrounding the optimisation of gender diversity, and the suggested pathways for progress. Focusing on sixteen European countries, the skilled contributors explore the current situation in relation to women on boards debates and approaches taken. They include detailed reflections from critical stakeholders, such as politicians, practitioners and policy-makers. Volume 1 focuses on eight European countries having adopted quotas and is a promising and highly valuable resource for academics, practitioners, policy makers and anyone interested in gender diversity because it examines and critiques the current corporate governance system and national strategies for increasing the share of women not only on boards, but within companies beyond the boardroom.

Gender equality is a moral and a business imperative. But unconscious bias holds us back and de-biasing minds has proven to be difficult and expensive. Behavioral design offers a new solution. Iris Bohnet shows that by de-biasing organizations instead of individuals, we can make smart changes that have big impacts—often at low cost and high speed.

Even as corporate influence on every aspect of life continues to grow, women (overall, and especially women of color) remain woefully underrepresented in corporate governance roles, particularly on boards of directors. This lack of gender diversity in the corporate boardroom is prevalent not only in more established companies but also persists -- often at even higher levels -- in new ventures as well. This Essay details the persistent lack of progress over more than a half century in diversifying leadership in corporate governance. This progress is especially concerning given that the benefits of diversity for sound decision-making and overall corporate welfare have been established empirically, putting into question whether those boards that fall short on gender equity are meeting their fiduciary duties of good governance. The Essay confronts and debunks the common reasons given for slow progress and outlines specific steps that corporate boards and others seeking to improve gender equity in corporate governance can deploy to make faster and more consistent progress.This Essay is part of the George Washington Law Review's 2018 symposium, Women and Corporate Governance: A Conference Exploring the Role and Impact of Women in the Governance of Public Corporations.

Existent literature has identified the existence of some differences between men and women entrepreneurs in terms of propensity to innovation, approach to creativity, decision making, resilience, and co-creation. Without properly examining the current inequalities in social-economic structures, it is difficult to examine the results of corporate female leadership. The Handbook of Research on Women in Management and the Global Labor Market is a pivotal reference source that examines the point of convergence among entrepreneurship organizations, relationship, creativity, and culture from a gender perspective, and researches the relation between current inequalities in social-economic structures and organizations in the labor market, education and individual skills, wages, work performance, promotion, and mobility. While highlighting topics such as gender gap, woman empowerment, and gender inequality, this publication is ideally designed for managers, government officials, policymakers, academicians, practitioners, and students.

Gender diversity as a corporate governance mechanism is high on the agenda for regulators, firms, and researchers. Particularly, gender board composition has received a great deal of attention in recent years. The theoretical foundations of the benefits associated with the inclusion of female directors on boards, how to measure gender diversity in the boardroom, and its real impact on board decisions and firm strategies remain hotly debated. Drawing on empirical data, this book summarises the current situation regarding gender board diversity and provides a concise overview of the most important concerns about this topic. This will be a vital tool to guide the future debate on gender diversity and corporate governance for researchers and advanced students, as well as regulators, policy makers and board members.

Mixed findings exist in the field of research into the presence of women in management positions, and on the boards of companies, and the relationship between gender equity and financial performance. Gender equality is such a contentious issue globally, that a specific UN sustainable development goal (Goal 5) is aimed at addressing this. This study focused primarily on the representation of female directors on the boards of the Top 40 companies listed on the JSE. In recent years, the JSE has implemented gender policy disclosure requirements aimed at highlighting the problem of inequality in the boardroom. Though there has been minimal progress over the years, by 2019 only 27% of directors serving on the boards of the Top 40 JSE-listed companies are female. Through the quantitative analysis performed, the study examined the difference between boards where 20% or more female directors are present and boards with less than 20% female directors, and their relation to financial performance which is defined by the dependent variables of annual share-price growth, annual revenue growth and return on equity. It was concluded that there is no difference in annual share-price growth and return on equity where boards have 20% or more female directors. However, a statistically significant difference is noted on annual revenue growth where 20% or more female directors are present on the board of the JSE Top 40 companies between 2015 and 2019. Furthermore the introduction of the gender disclosure policy requirement by the JSE could have influenced the growth in female directors after 2017.

Why Women Should Be Taken More Seriously in the Boardroom in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

Historically, there has been a lack of parity between women and men in senior corporate roles, particularly in major companies with the biggest market capitalisation. This can be partly explained by inequalities of career opportunity and also women’s self-perceptions. Yet there are plenty of examples in business and other worlds, notably politics, that women can perform effectively in the highest leadership roles. Some countries have actively encouraged greater female representation on the boards of major companies. This is a positive step forward. When women join the boards of top companies, the decision-making climates of these bodies can change for the better. When women are appointed as leaders of poorly performing companies they can turn them around and convert them into success stories every bit as often as male appointees. Women have been dismissed as lacking the character for business leadership. Sometimes, women are their own worst enemies and feel uncomfortable when members of their own gender act more like men. Yet, self-belief can strengthen their perceived suitability for top jobs. Women do need to act tougher to get to the top, but this does not mean abandoning their femininity or having a fulfilling life outside business. Why Women Should Be Taken More Seriously in the Boardroom is a useful tool for business students as well as those in the corporate world looking to gain a deeper understanding of gender balance within leadership roles.
