    This edited book collection that is expected to be published by Edward Elgar will bring together contributions from around the globe to provide thought leadership and comprehensive insights on the interlinking dimensions of gender, diversity and sustainability from an enterprise perspective.
    It includes a focus on understanding the interplay between innovative technologies, gender and sustainable entrepreneurship. It also has a focus on policy and practice providing insights on initiatives and best practices to facilitate founders' sustainability efforts around the globe. 

    Book chapters will explore, but are not limited to, areas such as:

    ·         understanding gendered aspects of sustainable entrepreneurship in different contexts; 

    ·         examining how sustainable practices are aligned with business strategies and sustainability goals; 

    ·         role of digital technologies in impacting business growth and sustainability;
