Alicja Hadryś-Nowak , Adrianna Lewandowska , Ewa Więcek-Janka
AbstractThe literature review presented in works on women in business, both empirical and theoretical studies (Al-Dajani, Marlow, 2010; Dajani, in., 2013; Dugan, in, 2008; Dumas, 1992, 1998; Gillis-Donovan, Moynihan-Bradt, 1990; Marshack, 1994) shows the changes that have occurred in recent years in the context of the increasing presence of women in corporations and in family owned businesses. Many authors (Nelton, 1998; Vera and Dean, 2005; Dugan et al., 2008) argue that there is a need for more studies, that will allow to determine the characteristics, professional and personality of women who manage family businesses, as well as their management styles as family owned businesses are backbones of world economies. In many countries, which survey the entrepreneurial families, there are no national statistical surveys about family business and women presence in business. Therefore, the aim of paper is to present the official nationwide statistics regarding women in family owned businesses in Poland. In the paper authors will focus on such aspects as: number of women as family business owners, what is the company’s age, values they most identify with in the activity of running a business, how many people they employ, do they want to transfer their company to the family in the next generation?, how profitable are businesses they run?, and what is the scope of theirs family owned businesses?
