Diversité du genre dans le Conseil d’Administration des ETI françaises : quelle masse critique de femmes pour influer sur la performance financière ?

Abstract : This study aims to analyze the relationship between gender diversity in the boardroom and companies’ overall financial performance. Our focus bears on the impact of the increase of women sitting on the boards of French medium-sized companies (ETI) has on their performance. Our research is supported by an unbalanced panel of 965 firm-year observations of 173 boards of directors from publicly traded French ETIs (Euronext and Alternext). Our findings support the thesis that an increase in the number of female directors on the board has a positive impact on companies’ financial performance. Our findings are in line with the critical mass and Token status theories. The more women there are in the boardroom, the better the company’s financial performance will be.
