Women and Leadership

My research centers around the critical topic of women and leadership, exploring their roles in various corporate structures and leadership positions. I aim to address the gaps in the existing literature by providing clear and systemic insights into the factors that influence board gender composition and women's access to high-ranking positions in both business and corporate networks. My study specifically delves into the dynamics of women's access to corporate boards over the past century in Argentina and Chile, identifying key factors that have shaped their fluctuating recruitment patterns. More broadly, through an analysis of institutional, organizational, and individual factors, I aim to better understand the progress made and the challenges that women still encounter in attaining meaningful representation and inclusion in leadership roles.

Ultimately, the research's impact extends beyond academic boundaries, seeking to empower women in the workplace and drive positive societal change by fostering more equitable and inclusive leadership practices.
