General Poster Session during Lunch
Traditionally, women have dealt with the private development potential neglected in the public sphere and its incorporation into paid production systems. Even today, despite the many changes in the socio-cultural, political, regulatory and better qualified female, careers of women are at the expense of having to free up time and effort of household tasks. However, the participation of women in the labor market, either as employees or as entrepreneurs, it is essential for growth and economic development of any region or country as stated in the International Meeting of Mali, in 2010, and identifies the institutions like the ILO (2002), ECLAC (2005) and the United Nations Organization (UNO).
In relation to the different theories that study the situation of women in the business world, as indicated by Diaz (2000), women were always present in the business world but only from the eighties of the twentieth century, the topic generated interest for research (Berg, 1997).
The pioneering research on the business of the women were censored based on paradigms, methods and theories developed only from the difference between the masculine (Gatewood et al, 2003), lack of theoretical grounding (Brush, 1992) or lack of explicit analysis from a gender perspective (Mirchandani, 1999; Ogbor, 2000).
The study we conducted could be included in studies on women and the labor market. It focuses on knowing the status of a sample of college-educated entrepreneurs trying to visualize their situation in the labor market, as traditionally male-dominated as the company, from a postmodern approach that part of the consideration that women do not a homogeneous group and that various factors (family, education, life cycle, references and business models, etc..) may be responsible for any differences between them that should be investigated.
Diaz (2000) states, and we share that any research that takes gender as central to bear in mind that gender relations are specific to time and space to study and, therefore, its depends on understanding the mechanisms that structure the sociocultural context in which they occur. Topics of study focuses on the characteristics of businesses run by women, in their experience and training, women's motivations to engage in business, in reviews of the obstacles in the initiation and development of entrepreneurial activity in personality traits, etc.. (Brush and Hisrich, 1991; Romero, 1996, Ortiz et al., 2008, Rodriguez and Santos, 2008).
The central questions of the research we carry out are: Why do women undertake? and what college women entrepreneurs need in their career plans? In the poster we will present to answer two specific objectives of the study: to analyze the reasons that lead women, college, create or engage in a business project and gather information on training needs were to undertake and the training needs of the company.
