Women in African Family Businesses - A Still Untapped Opportunity

 | 

"When taking a closer look at big family firms, there’s one striking observation: Most of them are male-dominated. [...] While women contribute substantially to, and comprise a significant portion of entrepreneurs among communities, they seem to be stalled in their way to the top of bigger family firms. While the traditional, small-sized family businesses in Africa are often associated with women and the key role they play in such enterprises, females are largely neglected in larger, internationally active African family businesses."
