This paper explores the motivation of women to lead in small and micro non-profit organisations in the United Kingdom.
A systematic literature review within a fixed timespan and geographical boundaries was conducted around key themes and semantic criteria.
Evidence of gender differences related to the motivation to lead in the non-profit sector was revealed. The review indicated that men were driven by pragmatic interests and ego; whereas women were motivated through the opportunity to be change agents.
Findings and implications are limited in scope by the geographical focus and the exclusion of ‘grey literature’ from the study, as well as the nature of secondary research.
This study provides exposes a gap in the field and new insight into the motivation to lead and indications for diversifying executive positions.
