Institutional Foundations of Gender Inequality in Entrepreneurship across 24 Industralized Countries

This study was conducted by Associate Professor Sarah Thébaud of the University of California. It was published in the Administrative Science Quarterly, 2015.

It is an interesting review of survey data from 24 different industrialized nations over an 8-year period of time created in order to assess the relationship between work, family policies, and what effect those policies have on the level of entrepreneurial activity based on gender.

At a time in which we are all interested in understanding forces that create entrepreneurs, this particular one focused on the gender component, is certainly worth a review. Needless to say, the Power Point Presentation is a whole lot easier to access than the article itself, which is pretty dense in content. I hope you enjoy it.
