Contributions of women directors in Malaysian listed companies towards company’s financial performance

By S.Z. Abidin and S. Othman


As the growing numbers of literature acknowledged the importance of women directors in enhancing the company’s performance, either financially or non-financially, the number of women directors apparently is still minimal on the board’s seats. Not only women boards are minority in terms of number, but their significant contributions are also still controversially debated. To answer this call, this study was conducted to strongly emphasize the importance of women directors by making known a few significant contributions that have the ability to enhance the company’s financial performance. Thus, this paper aims to examine relationship between the contributions of women directors as stakeholder representative, good decision maker and in corporate social responsibility with the company’s financial performance. Questionnaires were constructed and delivered to corporate officers in 250 public listed companies with women on boards. The results depicted that stakeholder representatives, good decision maker, and corporate social responsibility have a mixed significant relationship with company’s financial performance. The initial relationship outcomes and multiple regression analysis showed that only the corporate social responsibility was found to have a significant positive relationship with the company’s financial performance. The researchers believe that the findings and recommendations of this study are able to contribute a significant impact on the research area. © BEIESP
