heal.abstract
Gender diversity in boards created a wide academic debate based on the impact that equally gender represented boards can have on corporate governance strategies of a company, firm’s performance and decision-making (Hamill, Ward & Wylie, 2011). In view of a regulatory Directive from the European Union about the issue of gender equality in boards, in this study, we tried to investigate the reality about gender diversity in Greek boards of directors and in top management positions in general. We indentified a related gap among gender in high responsibility positions of Greek enterprises and we explored the public opinion on the matter. Therefore, we ended in contradictory results, regarding percpectives among males and females, as far as concerns the issue of including more women in Greek boardrooms, due to the fact that the matter is connected with established social and firm attitudes during decades.
