Gender Diversity in Führungsteams und Unternehmensperformanz

Zusammenfassung

Theoretische und empirische Untersuchungen des Zusammenhangs zwischen Gender Diversity in Führungsteams und Unternehmensperformanz weisen inkonsistente Befunde auf. Vor diesem Hintergrund präsentiert der vorliegende Beitrag die Ergebnisse einer Metaanalyse zu der Frage, wie und in Abhängigkeit von welchen Randbedingungen eine gemischt-geschlechtliche Zusammensetzung von Führungsteams mit Unternehmensperformanz verbunden ist. Basierend auf 38 Einzelstudien kann kein signifikanter Zusammenhang zwischen Gender Diversity und Unternehmensperformanz insgesamt identifiziert werden. Zudem erweisen sich auch die untersuchten Moderatoren (Größe des Führungsteams, Branche, kultureller Kontext und Performanzkriterium) als nicht signifikant.

Abstract

Both theoretical and empirical analyses of the association between gender diversity in leadership teams and organizational performance show inconsistent results. Therefore, this study provides a comprehensive meta-analysis on the question how and depending on which contingency factors gender diversity in leadership teams is related to organizational performance. Based on 38 studies, no significant association can be identified between gender diversity and overall organizational performance. In addition, none of the investigated moderators (i.e., team size, industry setting, cultural context, and performance measure) turns out to be significant.
