BNI's Networking Sex Survey: Do Men and Women Approach Networking Differently?

Share Article

An innovative on-line survey is now being conducted by the authors of a forthcoming book on gender and networking, to study this fascinating question.

Business networking is a practice that occurs every day, everywhere across the globe; but have you ever wondered whether men and women approach networking differently?

New York Times best-selling author Dr. Ivan Misner and Hazel Walker and Frank De Raffele are three people who did wonder whether the sexes approach networking differently. Together, they will be co-authoring a book on the subject, based on the findings from an online survey which is available now for the general public to participate in.

This innovative survey, which takes only a few minutes to complete, is an opportunity for anybody and everybody to play a part in finding the answer to the mysterious and very interesting question of whether men and women actually do approach networking differently. The survey's findings will be used to decipher fact from stereotype and assumption regarding gender in relation to business networking; and any opinions and/or comments contributed by survey participants will be kept completely confidential.

Thus far, the survey has drawn over 5,000 participants and the authors of the future book are hoping to hear from at least 2,000 more. Responses from men and women in Africa and South America are especially needed.
