NoteStreams By Henrik Cronqvist
Why do some of America’s largest corporations spend an extra US$59.5 million a year on corporate social responsibility? New research suggests it’s because they’re run by chief executive officers with daughters. Our research, shows that where the main decision maker has a female child, the company is generally much nicer to employees, and there are positive spin-off effects for the wider society as well.
