Abstract:

In spite of women making up increasing parts of the workforce, we are still far from gender equality when it comes to higher ranked positions. Work-family practices might help to bridge this gap. The doctoral thesis contains four essays in the context of gender, work family practices and productivity. In a first essay, the relation between the share of women serving on the supervisory board and firm performance is analyzed. The second essay studies whether firms that are characterized by a family-friendly culture are more likely to have women serving on their boards. The third essay studies a) potential institutional effects (country and industry) in the provision of work-family practices and b) the relation between the provision of work-family practices and extraordinary turnover. The fourth essay analyzes the role of parenthood for the publication productivity of researchers.
