Abstract

This paper investigates the relationship between board gender diversity and firm performance has been investigated using a panel dataset over the period 2009-2011. Applying quantile regression, we show that board gender diversity has a different effect on firm performance over different points of the conditional distribution. Moreover, we find that the relationship is dependent upon the measure of performance used (Tobin’s Q or Return On Assets). Indeed, it can be contradictory.
