About the Workshop series

The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society of Audencia Business School and the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal invite you to the

3rd Paper Development Workshop Series in Family Entrepreneurship

Audencia Business School hosts an annual Paper Development Workshop on family entrepreneurship, and the school is among the international leaders in this emerging area of scholarship. The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society launched this Paper Development Series in Family Entrepreneurship in 2017. After a first edition on ‘Family entrepreneurship writing workshop’ (2017) and a second edition on ‘Theorizing family entrepreneurship’ (2018), we are happy to announce the third edition of this series of research workshops organized in collaboration with the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal (GEST ESG UQAM).

GEST is a research center of the University of Québec in Montréal’ School of Management (ESG UQAM) which addresses entrepreneurial practices, identities and discourses in marginalized contexts and for minorized people. It aims at participating to a change for a new inclusive and fruitful relation between entrepreneurship and social transformations and then addressing the dark side of entrepreneurial practices. The GEST members challenge theoretical assumptions and consider entrepreneuring in a process perspective.

Topic of the 2020 Paper Development Workshop

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

We would like to invite the authors interested in submitting to the special issue « From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring » of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior and Research (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijebr/family-entrepreneurship-family-entrepreneuring)

to present their work-in-progress to the Guest editors – Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Olivier Germain and William B. Gartner during the Paper Development Workshop which will take place on October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. The special issue and the Paper Development Workshop aim to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses.

For this Paper Development Workshop, we call for papers addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how business family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also

emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Indicative list of anticipated (but not exclusive) topics :

  • How processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • How the various kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can highlight various dimensions of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the familiness emerges – as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-exists the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study and write about family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) are embedded in practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How doing (social) identity work within family businesses can be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Aims and Scope:

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

The aim of this special issue is to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses. The Guest Editors encourage submissions of theoretical and empirical contributions addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Helin, 2011; Helin & Jabri, 2014; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

  • What are the various dimensions of family entrepreneuring, and how do these dimensions influence different kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can?
  • How does familiness emerges– as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-existing before the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?

Topic of the 2020 Paper Development Workshop

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

We would like to invite the authors interested in submitting to the special issue « From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring » of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior and Research (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/journal/ijebr/family-entrepreneurship-family-entrepreneuring)

to present their work-in-progress to the Guest editors – Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Olivier Germain and William B. Gartner during the Paper Development Workshop which will take place on October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. The special issue and the Paper Development Workshop aim to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses.

For this Paper Development Workshop, we call for papers addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how business family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also

emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Indicative list of anticipated (but not exclusive) topics :

  • How processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • How the various kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can highlight various dimensions of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the familiness emerges – as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-exists the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study and write about family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) are embedded in practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How doing (social) identity work within family businesses can be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring

Special issue call for papers from International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior & Research

The submission portal for this SI will open January 15th 2021

Call for the Special Issue: From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring CALL FOR PAPERS IJEBR

Call for the PDW in Nantes 12 & 13 October 2020: http://entrepreneuriat.com/from-family-entrepreneurship-to-family-entrepreneuring-nantes-12-13-october-2020/

Aims and Scope:

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

The aim of this special issue is to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses. The Guest Editors encourage submissions of theoretical and empirical contributions addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Helin, 2011; Helin & Jabri, 2014; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Possible Topics

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • How do processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • What are the various dimensions of family entrepreneuring, and how do these dimensions influence different kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can?
  • How does familiness emerges– as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-existing before the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How are various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) embedded in the practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How can the doing of (social) identity work within family businesses be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Submissions must be original and must not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Papers that are suitable for publication in the special issue will be double-blind reviewed as per the IJEBR’s review process guidelines. The editors will base their final acceptance decisions on relevance for the special issue, technical quality, innovative content, and originality of research approaches and results.

About the Workshop series

The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society of Audencia Business School and the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal invite you to the

3rd Paper Development Workshop Series in Family Entrepreneurship

Audencia Business School hosts an annual Paper Development Workshop on family entrepreneurship, and the school is among the international leaders in this emerging area of scholarship. The Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society launched this Paper Development Series in Family Entrepreneurship in 2017. After a first edition on ‘Family entrepreneurship writing workshop’ (2017) and a second edition on ‘Theorizing family entrepreneurship’ (2018), we are happy to announce the third edition of this series of research workshops organized in collaboration with the Group Entrepreneurship Society Transformations of University of Quebec in Montréal (GEST ESG UQAM).

GEST is a research center of the University of Québec in Montréal’ School of Management (ESG UQAM) which addresses entrepreneurial practices, identities and discourses in marginalized contexts and for minorized people. It aims at participating to a change for a new inclusive and fruitful relation between entrepreneurship and social transformations and then addressing the dark side of entrepreneurial practices. The GEST members challenge theoretical assumptions and consider entrepreneuring in a process perspective.

Topic of the 2020 Paper Development Workshop

For several decades, the fields of entrepreneurship and family business developed as separate knowledge domains (Holt, Pearson, Payne, & Sharma, 2018; Zahra & Sharma, 2004). Recently, the field of family entrepreneurship (Neubaum, 2018; Payne, 2018; Short, Sharma, Lumpkin, & Pearson, 2016) emerged at the intersection of family, entrepreneurship, and family business. While there has been an increasing interest in combining the distinct academic fields of entrepreneurship and family business (Aldrich & Cliff, 2003; Anderson, Jack & Drakopoulou Dodd, 2005), the early stages of creation of family businesses in entrepreneurial families (Alsos, Carter & Ljunggren 2014) and the emergence of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in the context of family businesses are underdeveloped areas of inquiry.

We would like to invite the authors interested in submitting to the special issue « From Family Entrepreneurship to Family Entrepreneuring » of the International Journal of Entrepreneurial Behavior and Research (https://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/call_for_papers.htm?id=8869) to present their work-in-progress to the Guest editors – Miruna Radu-Lefebvre, Olivier Germain and William B. Gartner during the Paper Development Workshop which will take place on October 12th and 13th 2020 in Nantes, France. The special issue and the Paper Development Workshop aim to draw attention to the emergence and becoming of family businesses and the actualizing of entrepreneurial behaviours, identities and projects in already existing family businesses.

For this Paper Development Workshop, we call for papers addressing the topic of family entrepreneuring with a focus on processes and practices relative to how business family members, couples and families do entrepreneurship. Steyaert (2007, p. 453) coined the notion of entrepreneuring to call for more processual inquiries in the field of entrepreneurship. Entrepreneuring is a processual, material, and relational phenomenon (Champenois, Lefebvre, & Ronteau, 2019; Hjorth, 2014; Hjorth & Reay, 2018) leading to the creation of new organizations (Gartner, 1993; Johannisson, 2011). We recognize that “familiness” does not always pre-exist entrepreneurial practices but also

emerges through the process of entrepreneuring. We call for more processual inquiries in the field of family entrepreneurship, within an ontology of becoming (Chia, 1995). We think that this perspective of combining entrepreneuring and family business is unexplored and requires further theoretical and empirical explorations.

Indicative list of anticipated (but not exclusive) topics :

  • How processes and practices of entrepreneuring occur in the context of enterprising families and family businesses?
  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • How the various kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can highlight various dimensions of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the familiness emerges – as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-exists the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study and write about family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How the various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) are embedded in practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How doing (social) identity work within family businesses can be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Structure of the Workshop

The Paper Development Workshop will be held in Nantes over two full days, October 12-13, 2020. The workshop will include keynote lectures, reading workshops and paper development sessions.

  • What are the tensions arising between what already exists and the emergence of newness in the context of enterprising families and family firms?
  • What are the various dimensions of family entrepreneuring, and how do these dimensions influence different kinds of processual approaches in entrepreneuring (see Steyaert, 2007) can?
  • How does familiness emerges– as a family becoming – through the entrepreneuring process rather than pre-existing before the organization creation in a non-reified perspective?
  • What are the sub-processes and practices involved in family entrepreneuring? How to deal with the complexity of possible intersections of multiple sub-processes and multiple practices in the succession process (succeeding) and family entrepreneuring?
  • Which practices and processes are at work to maintain the familiness of organizations in the unstable flow of action(s)?
  • From a methodological perspective, how to study family entrepreneuring?
  • How should multiple cultural, social and economic contexts be accounted for and included in the study of family entrepreneuring?
  • How are various anthropological approaches of family forms (e.g., monoparental families, LGBTQ+ families, etc.) embedded in the practices and processes of entrepreneuring?
  • How do the processes of entrepreneuring intersect with the doing of gender in enterprising families?
  • How can the doing of (social) identity work within family businesses be understood as an entrepreneuring process and practice within an ontology of becoming (and relating)?
  • How can we study, problematize and challenge family entrepreneuring in a critical perspective?

Paper Development Workshop – Family Entrepreneurship – Audencia Nantes – 12-13 avril

The Rn’B Lab and the Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society
Paper Development Workshop Series
Family Entrepreneurship

Issue N° 2: Family Entrepreneurship theory development workshop
Dates: April 12-13, 2018
Location: Nantes, France
Deadline: March 1st, 2018

FE_WS_2018_call_22_01_18

The Rn’B Lab and the Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society of Audencia are happy to announce the second edition of its new series of research workshops.  Audencia Business School is among Europe’s top management schools and offers programmes that are regularly featured in the best international rankings. The school has prestigious international accreditations: EQUIS (EFMD) since 1998, AACSB since 2004 and Amba since 2010 for the full-time MBA and since 2012 for the Audencia Master in Management (Grande Ecole programme). The mission of the Chair Family Entrepreneurship and Society is to develop relevant research on family firms, as well as programmes for intra-family successors. The Chair also organizes several annual research and business meetings, conferences and networking events.

For the past decades, the fields of entrepreneurship, family, and family business research have been the object of numerous studies, regularly published and communicated at conferences and in scientific journals. While entrepreneurship, family, and family business have been studied as relatively separate domains with their own dedicated research conferences and academic journals, other scholars attempt to build research on their intersection: family entrepreneurship. Thus, the field of family entrepreneurship includes, yet goes beyond, that of family business.

This rapidly developing field is attracting much scholarly attention, as we can see by the research production to date (e.g. Bettinelli, Randerson, and Fayolle, 2014; Randerson, Bettinelli, Fayolle and Anderson, 2015; Randerson, Bettinelli, Fayolle and Dossena, 2016; Randerson, Dossena and Fayolle, 2016; Radu Lefebvre and Lefebvre, 2016; Dibrell, Bettinelli and Randerson, 2017), but also since 2012 a regular Professional Development Workshop and the annual meeting of the Entrepreneurship Division of the Academy of Management.

The second issue of the Audencia Paper Development Workshop Series is dedicated to developing theory for Family Entrepreneurship. We would like to invite scholars from the fields of Family Science, Entrepreneurship, and Family Business and others (e.g. OB, HRM, Psychology, among others) to convene to identify theories relevant to advance Family Entrepreneurship research. This workshop aims to be highly interactive: there will be of course opportunities to present works-in-progress in the traditional academic format, but also times for sharing what one’s own research or field brings to FE (pechakucha format), creating knowledge (focus groups). We hope that these two days will be a great opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones, create new synergies and co-authorships.

Confirmed attendees for the moment: Céline Barrédy, Andrea Calabro, Maria Jose Parada Balderrama, Bill Gartner, Josh Daspit, Natalia Vershinina, Eric Clinton, Claire Seaman…

To guarantee a high quality of interaction, participation to this workshop will be limited to 50 participants, on a first come, first serve basis. There are no registration fees, and meals and coffee breaks will be provided for the duration of the workshop.

Timeline

  • Before March 1stst : submit an extended abstract or a letter of intention (what you bring to FE in a few paragraphs) to Kathleen Randerson (kathleenranderson @ yahoo.fr), copying Abbie Dayao (adayao @ audencia.com)
  • April 23-13, 2018: workshop.

Paper Accelerator Workshop on Gender and Entrepreneurship – 19-20 February, 2018 – IÉSEG School of Management

   

Key note speakers:

Dr. Sarah Thebaud and Dr. Sally Jones


Call for Papers

Individuals evoke cultural biases when they interpret and judge phenomena against standards and norms – or stereotypes – inherent to their own culture. Accumulating evidence suggests that cultural biases have a broad impact on gender disparities in entrepreneurial interest, activity and success. Stereotypes about women’s and men’s differing abilities can prompt women to evaluate business opportunities less favorably, lower their entrepreneurial intentions and self-efficacy, and disadvantage them in their quest for financial and social support from others  (Bigelow et al. 2014; Gupta et al, 2008; 2009; Gupta and Turban, 2012; Thébaud 2010; 2015).  Cultural beliefs regarding men’s and women’s roles in the family—beliefs which are variably shaped by the normative and cultural context (Chell and Baines, 1998; Nelson and Constantinidis, 2016)— can further facilitate or hinder entrepreneurial behavior (Welter et al, 2006; Cliff, 1998; Thébaud, 2015).

However, contemporary entrepreneurship research is often de-contextualized, with a relative lack of attention to the structural and cultural features that impact gender inequalities in entrepreneurial resources, strategies, and outcomes (Hughes et al, 2012; Lewis, 2014; Jennings and Brush, 2013, Ahl, 2006; Welter et al, 2016). Future research would benefit from more collaborative work across national borders which investigates how cultural biases pattern entrepreneurship differently in different contexts. We also believe that the full breadth and scope of what constitutes gender and entrepreneurship research requires extension. For example, studies investigating the impact of gender stereotypes on men entrepreneurs (Jennings and Brush, 2013) or the constraints of dominant models of masculinity for men in family business (Nelson and Constantinidis, 2016) would prove fruitful. At the same time, whiteness and masculinity continue to provide intangible resources to entrepreneurial legitimacy (Martinez Dy, et al., 2016) and there is a need for more research which addresses how intersecting identities (gender and race, social class, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability) form and shape the entrepreneurial experience.

In this workshop, we are especially interested in papers that theorize and/or empirically evaluate the ways that gender stereotypesand implicit cultural beliefs affect entrepreneurial outcomes—such as entrepreneurial interests, processes, resources, or activities.  We especially welcome scholarly work that identifies how the (negative) effects of cultural biases may be mitigated in certain social contexts

This is a paper development workshop. We seek to assemble a group of mid-career researchers, with an established knowledge and experience in gender and entrepreneurship research, who are looking to accelerate existing manuscripts.  Through expert reviews, discussion and feedback – from both peers and two key note speakers (Dr. Sarah Thébaud and Dr. Sally Jones) – we aim to help participants significantly improve and advance their papers.

In doing so, we hope to create, nurture and foster research collaboration between gender and entrepreneurship academics from different national contexts.

To guarantee a high quality of feedback, participation in this workshop will be limited to 15 papers. We welcome original research but will prioritize papers that have been previously presented at conferences or in preparation for journal submission. Workshop participants will be expected to read, reflect and discuss on other’s submissions.
