America’s Competitive Secret

Oxford University Press

Little information is available about the impact brought about by women leaders to companies, since women are rarely granted with high positions, especially in large institutions that are mostly comprised of male workers. While the term “critical mass” refers to a threshold number associated with a point wherein certain changes take place, it is important to ask whether critical mass brings about significant impacts or not. It is also important to establish what is meant by impact and how it can be measured. Through looking into studies of government officials, entrepreneurs, and corporate executives, this chapter looks into the impacts that women have, specifically on power relationships, agenda setting, management, the quality and quantity of benefits, and the behavior of both men and women.

Keywords:   impact, critical mass, benefits, power relationships, management, agenda setting, behavior
