|Title:||From the top: Women's and men's views on accessing boards||Contributor(s):||Milgate, Gina Clare (author); Sheridan, Alison Jane (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/4637||Abstract:||Women accessing board positions are still the exception to the rule in Australian businesses. In this paper, we report on research exploring men’s and women’s views on the factors crucial in attaining a board position. Both groups’ responses were analysed to gain insight into what current board members see as critical to accessing boards. While both groups identified the importance of a strong track record, a good understanding of business principles and business contacts in gaining board positions, we found that women also highlighted the importance of high visibility and family contacts to account for their nomination to boards.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||16th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference, Beechworth, Australia, 4th December - 7th December 2002||Conference Details:||16th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference, Beechworth, Australia, 4th December - 7th December 2002||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 16th Annual Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management (ANZAM) Conference: Enhancing Business and Government Capability, p. 1-7||Publisher:||ANZAM: Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management||Place of Publication:||La Trobe University, Victoria, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||150312 Organisational Planning and Management||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.anzam.org/conference
