ACFB founding director releases new book

Professor Ken Moores, founding director of the Australian Centre for Family Business, has teamed up with Professor Mary Barrett (University of Wollongong) to co-author Women in Family Business Leadership Roles – Daughters on the Stage. The book, which demonstrates women’s entrepreneurial leadership, was launched on March 23 by BDO Australia who were also proud sponsors of the books research.

Thirteen international cases were included in the research on the challenges that women have faced in traditionally conservative family business environments. The research focuses on the patterns of success and failure, and analysis on whether this is the result of gender or other factors.

Mary Barrett and Ken Moores breathe new life into research on one of the largest and yet frequently overlooked business sectors. This invigorating book will be an important resource in helping women and their families understand the dynamics of their family business. The authors’ passion for the subject will enhance understanding of family firms as well as the changing position of women in family enterprises. Family business owners and managers, as well as students and academics on entrepreneurship, family business and management courses will warmly welcome the book.
