This chapter provides a discussion concerning an empirical study and its gender-related results with respect to the role and position of women in Dutch social enterprises. The objective of the chapter is to discuss to what extent Dutch social enterprises are catalysts to promote the role and position of women in their organisational structure and functioning. As several social enterprises pursue as their societal goal the improvement of the position of women in society, or certain groups of (marginalised) women, this chapter analyses - on the basis of the empirical results - whether the role and position of women in Dutch social enterprises may indicate a change to sustainable organisational practices with positive outcomes for women in organisations, but also for women's lives in society.
