9788763002103: Women Entrepreneurship and Social Capital: A Dialogue and Construction

Human resources are the social capital of a firm or business, based on trust as well as on expertise, values, and cultural diversity. This calls for cross-cultural knowledge - an understanding of gender issues and individual differences in the social capital of the firm and society. The dialogue between women entrepreneurship and social capital theory/ research strengthens the fragmented voice of women entrepreneurship, providing the landscape for women entrepreneurs as creators of, and created by, social capital. It indicates how women entrepreneurs appear to have a special position in forming, developing, and reorganizing the social capital in the business world. This book explores social capital in the multiple relationships between gender, management, and entrepreneurship. Twenty-six researchers, representing a variety of disciplines from different parts of the world, provide findings on diverse aspects of the dialogue between women entrepreneurship and social capital. As a consequence, the central concepts - social capital, entrepreneurship, and gender - are given a variety of meanings. Women entrepreneurs and business owners - regardless of their cultural context, branch, and education - provide interesting ideas to the global debate on equality and social capital.

Review:

"The book contributes new and valuable knowledge on the intertwining of entrepreneurship, gender and social capital. Although it is written with university teachers and students of entrepreneurship in different disciplines in mind I think it is accessible to a wider audience and no doubt contributes important insight relevant for everyone working with entrepreneurship in one way or another."Professor Nina Gunnerud Berg, The Norwegian University of Science andTechnology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway"It is interesting to see through this book how women entrepreneurs interact with the institutional environment in which they act. The book is a sociological window that shows very well the evolutionary character of the identity of the entrepreneur. Women take different positions in every stage of their life cycle; their roles change through time, strengthens the integrated gender perspective on entrepreneurship that entrepreneurship is for women a means and not an end. It is a business strategy for men and a life strategy for women. For example entrepreneurship helps women teachers to learn in their jobs and in their lives. What is clear from this study is that women on an individual level are capable of bringing great change in their working lives."Associate Professor Raja Cherif,University of Tunis, Higher School ofManagement, Tunis, Tunisia"'Women Entrepreneurship and Social Capital' is a welcome and long overdue addition to our understanding of entrepreneurship, which, until now, has been an under-theorized, gendered, and, too often, parochial field. By simultaneously theorizing, contextualizing and dealing with the gendered nature of the field the editors have developed a readable account of the process of entrepreneurship in the twenty-first century."Professor Albert J. Mills,Sobey School of Business,St. Mary's University, Canada
