Collis, M, Gallus, J, Goldfarb, B, Eckhardt, J T, Park, M, Kim, T, Rocha, V, Brymer, R A, Kanze, D, Piazza, A, Delecourt, S and Younkin, P (2023) Diversity in Entrepreneurship - An Experimental Investigation. Academy of Management Proceedings, 2023 (1). ISSN 2151-6561


Women and members of many racial and ethnic groups remain starkly underrepresented in entrepreneurship worldwide. Recent literature attributes women’s underrepresentation to heightened structural and normative barriers such as son-favorism or biases in startup evaluations. Diversity has also been shown to shape firm-level outcomes such as creativity or productivity. This presenter symposium advances our understanding in those two key areas - diversity and entrepreneurship. Specifically, the symposium focuses on the following two questions: First, how do we reduce barriers for women and minority groups and increase their representation and inclusion in entrepreneurship? Second, how do greater representation and inclusion of women and minority groups impact startup performance? The symposium broadens our understanding by shedding light on different stages in the entrepreneurial process and by promoting work which uses an experimental paradigm.
