Women Entrepreneurship and Ethics


Women Entrepreneurship and Ethics in the western civilisation and democracies want to be food for thought on how stereotypes work on societies historically. Based on the Athenian Democracy and the Aristotelian Philosophy, we explore the historical /traditional role of women in society and discuss: (1) how this role impedes female entrepreneurship even today; (2) how our conception of democracy supports this impediment. Our discussion will explore possibilities to change to create a breakthrough concept into a new understanding of women in society in a new paradigm regarding the future of democracy. We will discuss:
Stereotypes and stereotypical thinking
Aristotelian Philosophy and its understanding in the Middle Ages (i.e. Averroes, Thomas Aquinas)
Democracy, Republic and Paternalism
Fem-entrepreneurship and Ethics
Issues with gender and digitalisation in our lives
