The study for the International Journal of Business Governance and Ethics surveyed 600 board directors about their approach to decision making and other corporate issues.

It found that when there were conflicting interests, women board members tended to make fairer decisions than men.

Female directors were more likely to consider how the decision would affect others, whether it is employees, investors or stakeholders for instance.
