Network Connections and Board Seats: Are Female Networks Less Valuable?

A 1995–2011 Danish labor market study found that professional network size affects supervisory board appointments. Larger networks increase the likelihood of becoming a first-time director, especially for men. According to the report, men have greater ties to larger and listed firms and other men, increasing their appointment chances. Women who were connected to incumbent directors before becoming directors have more labor market experience.
