Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


What is the relationship between corporate social responsibilities and director age? To shed light on this issue,we examine whether and how positive and negative corporate social responsibility (CSR) events relate to the directors’ age in Asian emerging economies. By using the upper echelon hypothetical perspective of Hambrick and Mason (1984), we found that the demographic characteristics of top management teams particularly director age having a significant relationship with corporate social responsibilities. Demographic characteristics of directors are an important way to measure individuals' cognitive bases; cognitive bases in turn combine to create certain team abilities and tendencies, resulting in patterns in board decision outcomes.
