Female Entrepreneurs, Family Embeddedness, and Legitimacy Thresholds
WHEN Friday | 19 Nov, 12:00 PM
WHERE 238 HRCB
Lisa Jones Christensen, Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior and Human Resources at BYU, and Katherine Glad will speak at this Global Women’s Studies (GWS) Colloquium event.
The work of Christensen and Glad stems from the need to understand the embedded nature of female entrepreneurship—which means exploring how context affects venture decision-making. Their presentation will specifically investigate the idea of a family legitimacy threshold for new ventures and tackles the question of when and why a family grants (or does not grant) resources to a female-led venture.
