Summary

Women perform nearly two-thirds of total work (including household duties), comprise one-third of the formal labor force, but receive only one-tenth of the world income and own one-hundredth of the world’s property. This book brings together distinguished entrepreneurship scholars to provide a unique global vision of the wellbeing of women entrepreneurs to foster sustainable development and inclusive societies.

Although gender inequality has long been an important discussion, solutions leading to gender parity are far from reaching their targets in the formal workplace globally. In contrast, women’s entrepreneurship is growing exponentially and opportunities for women to own a business and be their own boss offers desirable flexible working conditions that are aligned with women’s lifestyles and multiple family responsibilities. However, entrepreneurial activities are demanding and complex, and women face challenges that require special attention. This book focuses on programs that are effective in helping women entrepreneurs reach levels of wellbeing that in turn ensure business sustainability and increased prosperity.

Offering perspectives from around the globe, The Wellbeing of Women in Entrepreneurship will be of great interest to those working and researching in the disciplines of business management, entrepreneurship, human resource management, sustainable development and women’s studies.
