  • Evaluating the Influence of Digital Technology on the Performance of
           Female-Owned Enterprises in Nigeria

    • Authors: Habiba Shamaki, Umar Abbas Ibrahim, Nnanna Azu Philemon
      Pages: 39 - 60
      Abstract: The strategic contributions of digital technology in the operations and performance of entrepreneurial ventures are a profound phenomenon, involving continual adaptation to a constantly evolving business environment. This paper examines the influence of digital technology on female-owned enterprises based on customers satisfaction in Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, Nigeria. Survey research was employed to derive primary data through the use of structured closed-ended questionnaires from 113 selected female-owned enterprises registered with NECA's Network of Entrepreneurial Women (NNEW).  Adopting digital orientation, digital capability and digital transformation as dimensions of the digital technology which is the independent variable, multiple regression was used to measure its impact on customer satisfaction as the dependent variable. Findings revealed that the awareness of digitalisation does not suffice to influence business performance, but adopting and adapting to new technology is crucial in creating value addition to meet and exceed customers’ expectations. Conclusively, this research establishes the requisite for female-owned enterprises to embrace and exploit the vast potential and significant role that digital technology plays in the enhancement of business performance, for improved strategic competitive advantage and economic development.

  • The Effect of Gender and Age on the Dark Triad in Helping Professions –
           the Comparison with General Population

    • Authors: Radka Čopková
      Pages: 61 - 78
      Abstract: Helping professions represent professions in our society, whose main aim is to help others. Less attention was paid to the fact that, like every person, a helping professional has, to some extent, maladaptive personality traits too. The aim of the present study was to explore three aversive personality traits - Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy on a sample of helping professionals. The study was conducted on a sample of 312 participants from different sectors of the helping professions - pedagogical workers, healthcare workers, rescue workers, social workers and general population. The Slovak version of Short Dark Triad - SD3 has been administered (Jones & Paulhus 2014; Čopková & Šafár, 2021). The main result showed that helping professionals scored significantly higher than general population in psychopathy. The testing of between-subject variability while controlling the effect of gender and age indicated that in psychopathy healthcare workers and rescue workers scored significantly higher than general population. We find it helpful to point out that even among helping professionals, who are usually expected to be selfless and prosocial, we can find individuals who are attracted by the other side of pursuing this type of profession - the power they have over the person they provide help to. Based on several limitations we consider this study as a pilot one that might focus the attention on this understudied topic.

      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to examine the differences between men and women in 7 segments related to the financial inclusion. Research is based on the Global Findex Database for 2017. Sample comprises 144 countries worldwide.
      Authors applied nonparametric Wilcoxon Signed-Ranks test using a 95% confidence interval. Results of Wilcoxon Signed-Ranks test show that there are statistically significant differences between men and women in owning a financial institution account, saving at a financial institution, borrowing from a financial institution, owning a credit card, using a mobile phone or the Internet to access an account, using the Internet to pay bills or to buy something online, and making or receiving digital payments. In this regard, countries should focus their policies on measures to increase and improve women's financial inclusion, especially in the segments related to making or receiving digital payments and owning a financial institution account.

  • Board Gender Diversity and Intellectual Capital Performance of Firms in

    • Authors: Bharathi Kamath
      Pages: 97 - 116
      Abstract: The study analyses the impact of female representation on boards of top Indian firms and examines its impact on the financial as well as Intellectual Capital (IC) performance of these firms. A sample representing firms across different industries is studied for a five year period from FY 2014-15 to 2018-19. The data is analyzed using panel regression wherein BLAU’s Index, Shannon’s Index of gender diversity and percentage of independent women directors is taken as explanatory variables. The financial performance is measured using Return on Assets (ROA) and Average Turnover of Assets (ATO). The IC performance is measured using Value added intellectual capital (VAIC) and its sub-components viz. Human Capital Efficiency (HCE), Capital expended Efficiency (CEE) and Structural Capital Efficiency (SCE). The results of the study show a highly significant relationship between gender diversity, independent women directors and other board characteristics with ATO. Whereas, IC performance results are clear indication that at existing levels of women representation, gender diversity or IWD is not showing any specific and strong impact. The result for IC sub-components is mixed.

    • Authors: Md. Rahat Khan, Sanjoy Kumar Roy, Most. Tahura Pervin
      Pages: 117 - 136
      Abstract: Women entrepreneurship converged decades ago through the small business literature. However, the small business orientation (SBO) concept has not been thoroughly and consistently involved in the women entrepreneurship literature. Thus, the aim of the study was to evaluate the opinions of the retail small business women entrepreneurs to learn their entry model towards entrepreneurship practice in Bangladesh, opportunities, and threats, and the future direction of their business. The study was conducted on the in-depth interviews as well as participants and industry observation among the 20 women small retail entrepreneurs. The study constructs an entry model regarding retail-based women entrepreneurship from an emerging economy perspective. The outcomes of this research would play a great role in future research into the field of SBO and women entrepreneurship for emerging economies.

  • Antecedents of Entrepreneurial Intentions of Female Undergraduate Students
           in Bangladesh: A Covariance-Based Structural Equation Modeling Approach

    • Authors: Md. Mizanur Rahman, Aidin Salamzadeh, Mosab I. Tabash
      Pages: 137 - 153
      Abstract:             Due to the economic and social development, particularly in developing countries through entrepreneurship, Businesses, government organizations, and legislative bodies have all paid particular attention to entrepreneurship development. However, these developments are impossible without strengthening female students’ entrepreneurial intention (EI). As a result, the primary purpose of this paper is to investigate the impact of entrepreneurial antecedents on Bangladeshi female undergraduate students’ EI. A well-organized questionnaire was prepared and circulated to responders using the snowball sampling technique to achieve the goal. Finally, 251 female undergraduate students from higher educational institutions were chosen as the sample size. The covariance-based structural equation modelling (CB-SEM) approach has been applied using AMOS software to complete the analysis procedure. The findings revealed that two entrepreneurial antecedents (attitude and subjective norm) have a significant beneficial impact on EI. The study's outcomes indicate that entrepreneurial attitude, and subjective norms, play a vital role for Bangladeshi female students in enhancing their EI.

  • Integration of Gender Aspects into Development of Knowledge Management
           System in The Entrepreneurial Organizations in Serbia

    • Authors: Mirjana Radović Marković, Zorana Nikitović, Borko Somborac, Aleksandra Penjišević, Slađana Vujičić
      Pages: 154 - 169
      Abstract: For entrepreneurial organizations to be able to successfully develop the business strategy, it is necessary to provide optimal resources for unhindered growth, internal coherence, stability of organizational culture, and competitiveness in the market. At the heart of these processes are employees, who directly influence organizational outcomes with their daily efforts, ability, and thinking. Also, the improvement of business functions is necessary for the organization to be competitive with other organizations in the market. In this context, the effectiveness of knowledge management is one of the key aspects in ensuring the development of both individual and group performance. In today’s time of great challenges for entrepreneurs, managing the processes that provide knowledge to both employees and organizations can be a key aspect of business sustainability that is imperative in turbulent circumstances. The purpose of the study was to examine how organizational culture and gender aspects of employees should be put in the function of knowledge management system (KMS). In line with this, this paper attempts to examine the extent to which the processes of improving the knowledge of employees from a gender perspective in entrepreneurial organizations in Serbia are effectively managed. In order for women to realize a greater contribution in entrepreneurial organizations, it is imperative to stimulate the educational process by empowering both women and men to improve their well-being and participate actively in entrepreneurial organizations building.
      Authors pointed out that when technology and organizational culture are coupled with educational assistance and training, however, adoption improves, and benefits are greater. Finally, they concluded that statistical parameters explicitly show that there are no significant differences on any tested issue, between males and females. This means that their perspective is identical when it comes to the development and use of knowledge management in entrepreneurial organizations.

  • The Role of Migration in Women Entrepreneurship and Empowerment: Evidence
           from Nigeria

    • Authors: Viktoriya Kan, Boidurjo Mukhopadhyay
      Pages: 187 - 212
      Abstract: The research examines the relationship between the migration of men and the empowerment of women who remain in the households. The study looks at Nigeria – a Sub-Saharan African country with the highest migration outflows and prevalent gender inequality. The core research question is to examine whether the migration of men affects the entrepreneurship and empowerment of Nigerian women. For the purpose of this study, private entrepreneurship will state the employment status of women from both migrant and non-migrant households while the amount of housework and degree of decision-making power will constitute empowerment. The data is obtained from Nigerian General Household Survey 2018-2019. The sample used in the current analysis consists of 12,199 women, 15 years and older. The Ordinary Least Squares model is applied to assess the changes men’s migration might bring to housework of women who remain in the household. Logit regression addresses the entrepreneurship and decision-making power of Nigerian women. Probit regression serves as a robustness check for Logit, and as a separate econometric model. The findings generally support the pre-experiment expectations: migration of men decreases the amount of housework of Nigerian women, encourages them to run businesses, but reduces their decision-making power.
