Resumen

El objetivo de este artículo es determinar los factores que influyen en la participación de las mujeres colombianas en cargos directivos/órganos de gobierno de sus empresas familiares (ef). Se utiliza una metodología cualitativa y se define un modelo validado a través del estudio de casos tipo iv. Se analizan 14 casos de ef de segunda y tercera generación. Se presentan tres proposiciones congruentes con los resultados obtenidos. Se concluye que los factores internos (cuidado del patrimonio, desarrollo profesional y conservación de la unidad familiar) y los factores trascendentes (aporte al crecimiento de la empresa y generación de espacios de comunicación familiar) son los que motivan la participación de las mujeres. Los factores externos (conflictos familiares, desequilibrio trabajo-familia y definición del plan de carrera) desmotivan su participación. Las ef deben mejorar los factores externos para evitar la pérdida del talento y el compromiso profesional de las mujeres.
