Multinational Mining Companies in Tanzania have extended Corporate Social Responsibility to host communities in terms of health, roads construction, micro-finance, education, water supply projects and ‘others’ a category which comprises a bundle of petty projects.

Gender Disparities in Adoption of Improved Maize Varieties

This study examines gender disparities in adoption of improved maize varieties between male headed and female headed households. Data were collected by interviewing 148 proportionally selected respondents, whereby 115 were female headed and 33 were male-headed households using pre-tested structured questionnaires. The logit model results revealed that the adoption of improved maize variety is biased by gender, where FHH adopt the variety less.

Cultivated land size and distance to input market did not significantly affect the adoption of improved maize varieties for FHH, mainly due to less access of female heads to resources and services.

Leadership, organisational climate and workplace innovation

Innovation is a valued organisational asset that may assist the creation and maintenance of competitive advantage. A number of authors have proposed links between leadership, organisational climate and innovation, and these constructs appear to converge. This convergence led researchers to produce models of the interaction between the three constructs within organisations. It has generally been reported that leadership effects innovation and organisational climate or vise versa. However,to date there is no substantial, direct nor robust empirical evidence to inform this view. This book and detailed study addresses the relationship between leadership, organisational climate and innovation simultaneously.

Discourse on small business start-up in the UK, advanced by the British government and other agencies, is one of encouraging enterprise, innovation and entrepreneurship. This is especially the case with respect to women. It is however suggested that men are around two and a half times more likely to be entrepreneurs than women (UK Global Entrepreneurship Report, 2006). Women are presented as reluctant entrepreneurs, yet many women dream of starting-up either as a means to combine work and family life or as an escape from being organised by others.

The cumulative effects of seemingly unimportant but negative everyday exchanges erode women»s will to start. These exchanges range from women»s business not being taken seriously and masculine symbolism in the self- employment agency,…
