Gender quotas work in ‘tight’ cultures, says new resesarch

17 julio 2014

Quotas probably won’t get more women into the boardroom in places like the US and Canada. They have a better chance however in countries such as China or Germany where people place a higher value on obeying authority and conforming to cultural norms. It all comes down to a culture’s ‘tightness’ or ‘looseness’ — the degree to which a culture maintains social norms, adheres to authority structures and tolerates deviations from them.
