Economic value added of women on boards in Asia: Insights from Malaysia

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Gender diversity in boards of directors is a challenging issue for fast-developing

    economies in Asia. Although the economic implications

    of gender diversity has received attention in the context of developed

    economies, less is known about the contextual validity of these insights

    for understanding women’s corporate leadership contributions in Asia’s

    fast-developing economies. In this study we provide a preliminary account

    of the influence of board gender diversity and economic value added in

    the context of Malaysia. Our preliminary findings allude to important

    differences that have to be taken into account as fast-developing Asian

    economies adopt Western exemplars of corporate governance practice.
