Female Entrepreneurship: A Case Study of American Female Entrepreneurs

Women-owned businesses in the United States have increased dramatically in numbers but remain only 19.9% of all businesses as of 2018. While many external factors play a role, such as lack of financial capital and inadequate support networks, there are personal factors that inhibit a woman from starting a business such as family obligations, lack of confidence and lack of exposure to entrepreneurial experience. Fear of failure is a commonly expressed reason as to why a woman decides against entrepreneurship. Additionally, women entrepreneurs are more likely to have higher levels of agreeableness and neuroticism which can affect their ability to negotiate and manage stress and anxiety.

Factors Affecting Women In Entrepreneurship In Developing Countries

Women Entrepreneurs are understood to be an under-utilized group with significant potential for global and national economic growth and development. With the necessary drivers to foster their success, women entrepreneurs could enhance national competitiveness, reduce unemployment, lower poverty and social exclusion, and improve Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The McKinsey Global Institute suggests that by 2025, the global GDP could be increased by $12 trillion by improving women’s access to entrepreneurship opportunities.

Career Development Model For South Africa: Addressing Inequality of the Black Workforce

It is argued that the Black employee career experience and development is different from that of their Caucasian counterparts due to their socio-economic background in South Africa (Watson & Stead, 2001). This experience results from the emerging Black workforce being subject to the ramifications of historical inequities (De Beer, Rothmann Jr, & Pienaar, 2016). These historical inequities influence various areas of career development such as education, skills development and social networks.

Dr. Mohammadi Publishes On The Philosophical Grounds Of CSR

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is an important sphere in applied ethics. Different CSR theories have been presented during decades. Some of them are compatible with each other while some others are not. By focusing merely on the contents, it seems impossible to evaluate the different theories or to explain why different CSR theories and programs have been presented. However, this paper suggests that the variety of the debate comes from the (philosophical) grounds these theories are based. These grounds, as roots of CSR theories, can well explain, classify and evaluate different types of CSR theories. As a result of the philosophical classification and evaluation, it has been concluded that two types of CSR theories, pure and enlighten egoistic CSR, cannot be philosophically preferred. Instead, spiritual-egoistic CSR theories present better contents and programs in comparison with their rivals. Finally, as a suggestion for future investigations, it seems necessary for all CSR theories to both clarify and justify their grounds prior to presenting any other discussions.
