Falconieri, S. ORCID: 0000-0002-7633-562X & Akter, M. (2023). Gender diversity and beyond in corporate finance: where do we stand?. Review of Corporate Finance, 3(1-2), pp. 1-33. doi: 10.1561/114.00000034


We review the most recent contributions to the literature on the role of diversity in corporate finance. We focus on gender diversity but also includes various other dimensions of diversity, and analyses its impact on different aspects of corporate life, including performance, CSR strategy and corporate policies. We include the papers that are collected in this special issue which contribute to further advancing our understanding of the benefits of diversity for corporations. We conclude with some suggested avenues for future research.
