Men in Senior Management Positions Show Particularly Strong Opposition to the Board Gender Quota

Who endorses the gender quota on supervisory boards, and who rejects it? In a recent study, a team of researchers from the Universities of Mannheim and Göttingen has looked more closely at this question.

The results show a strong discrepancy in support for the quota between men and women.
