Większość doniesień literaturowych z badań nad wpływem płci na funkcjonowanie przedsiębiorstw wskazuje na gorsze wyniki kobiet w tym obszarze – zarówno pod względem liczby kobiet w biznesie, jak i osiągnięć firm prowadzonych przez kobiety. Badania te jednak często nie uwzględniają różnic w wielkości początkowej firm, nie biorą także pod uwagę celów i planów ich właścicieli. W wielu wypadkach te ostatnie nie są znane, analiza danych wtórnych uzyskiwanych z takich źródeł jak urzędy statystyczne nie uwzględnia bowiem opinii, odczuć, postrzegania, motywacji, co w dużym stopniu wpływa na funkcjonowanie firm. Biorąc pod uwagę przegląd literatury, zaproponowano model wpływu płci na działalność gospodarczą. Postawiono trzy hipotezy badawcze, które poddano weryfikacji na podstawie badań panelowych przeprowadzonych na 280 przedsiębiorstwach (w roku 2009 i 2012) w ramach Pomorskiego Obserwatorium Gospodarczego.

Most literature and empirical studies on the gender effect on the functioning of enterprises indicate underperformance of women in this area, both in terms of the number of women in business and the achievements of companies run by women. These studies, however, often do not take into account differences in the initial size of the companies or the objectives and plans of their owners. In many cases the latter are not known because the analysis of secondary data obtained from statistical offices does not cover feelings, perceptions, motivations which largely affect the functioning of companies. After a short literature review the model of the impact of gender on economic activity was proposed. Within this model, three hypotheses were verified on the basis of panel research conducted among 280 enterprises (2009 and 2012) as part of the Pomeranian Economic Observatory.
