The University of Nottingham recently carried out an interesting global study on women representation in corporate boardrooms and its impact on corporate innovation of multinational companies. Their study examined women representation in 472 multinationals from 21 countries. The cross-country study shows a strong positive relationship between women representation in corporate boardrooms and corporate innovation. They measured corporate innovation using data on firm-level investment in Research and Development expenditures (R&D). They also examined the impact of national culture on innovation and found that in countries with higher power distance, the relationship between gender and innovation is strongly positive.
