Sixth Why is WiFB important?
Family-owned enterprises around the world have to the majority been male-founded and male-led. Successors are more likely than not male descendants, leaving high potential female successors out of the equation.
This does not just perpetuate economic injustice for women but also hinders the development of inclusive and diverse leadership and insights, which family firms direly need to face the economic challenges of the 21st century.
Additionally, the transfer of wealth to millenials is likely to bring an exponential increase in female wealth owners, whose voices must be heard!
