Entrepreneurship and Gender Equity
This article from Trend Lines discusses one scientist’s hypothesis on female employees in large organizations.
Originally Brian predicted that larger organizations would have higher percentages of gender equity, his hypothesis was quickly disproven when it was discovered that smaller firms have higher percentages of gender equity amongst employees. The article also discusses education levels amongst female employees. The graph above shows gender equity and education percentages for different sized firms. As Brian said after discovering his hypothesis to be disproven:
“My new hypothesis is this – I don’t think (or at least I hope) that larger firms have any preference for hiring men over women. Rather, it is that a higher percentage of the smaller firms in these industries are likely to be women owned and newer businesses started, owned, or managed by women.”
The author will continue to research this trend and post more in the future, but for now read the full article by clicking here!
