Resumen

MKHIZE, Mkhethwa  y  MSWELI, Pumela. The impact of female business leaders on the performance of listed companies in South Africa. S. Afr. j. econ. manag. sci. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2222-3436.

The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of female business leaders in JSE-listed companies on the financial performance of those companies. This is as result of the proposition that women, over and above men, bring unique skills to the workplace. However, it is hypothesized in this study that JSE-listed companies led by a high percentage of women do not outperform similar companies led by a low percentage of women. The Lean Modigliani and France Modigliani measure (M2) was used to test this hypothesis. Results of this study indicate that companies led by women do not outperform similar companies led by men. As a result, the null hypothesis is not rejected. Implications of these results are discussed.

Palabras clave : financial performance; female business leaders; business women; employment equity.
