Abstract: Interest in the managerial behaviour of women in business has increased over the past decade due to women's increased representation in business. Recent data reveals that almost 40% of ISM (Institute for Supply Management) members are female managers and this number is expected to increase to 70% by the year 2010. This raises an important question for management researchers and practitioners: What are the differences between female and male supply managers in managing supply chains? Not many studies have addressed this issue in business and supply chain management fields. However, anecdotal evidence has suggested that women approach decision making differently from men. Extending the findings of previous management studies on gender differences in decision-making, the purpose of this study is to determine if gender differences regarding supply chain management practice exist.
