Does gender shape business?

The world of work was mostly made by men for men. As more women enter and rise through the economy, there’s a lot of dissatisfaction and discussion about how things are done; why is everything about achievement? Is making money really the be all and end all? And what’s the obsession with competition anyway?

Many women are forming their own ways of working to suit how they want to do business, which brings forth the question: does gender shape business?
