Women on corporate boards in Kenya - PhD defence by Millicent Omukaga

Dr Millicent Omukaga

On 2 September 2019, Millicent Omukaga successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled 'Women on Corporate Boards: navigating gender hurdles to access corporate boards in Kenya'.

Her study investigated the struggles around women representation on corporate boards in Kenyan companies listed on the Nairobi Securities Exchange. She noted that formal and informal institutions and practices that sustain female subordination and male dominance tend to privilege men in the gender order and leadership. Hence globally, women tend to be excluded from decision making, particularly on corporate boards.

The full text of her thesis will be available via the ISS Library repository shortly. In the meantime, you can download the abstract below.
