Gender and entrepreneurship: more research

27 02 2008

Further to the research on gender and entrepreneurship outlined at last week’s PROWESS Conference, the International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business (IJESB) has published a special issue on Gender and Entrepreneurship [5(3/4) 2008].  A range of topics are addressed from comparative and national perspectives; these include the effectiveness of women entrepreneurs, the influence of roles and identities on female entrepreneurial agency, and the perception of the importance of training for female entrepreneurs.

New research from Northumbria University on why women set up their own businessess in the North East reveals a range of factors which affect the decision of women to change direction in mid-life.  The factors include a combination of organizational sexism, personal and domestic circumstances, and the need to gain independance and control.
