This thesis uses tools and measures emerging social network analysis to study whether organisations are gender neutral. (...) We will be using the same data as these authors as Scandinavian countries and, specially, Norway are quite advanced in implementing equality policies. Equality strategies have been seen as potential ways to counteract the strong patterns of occupational sex segregation, both from governments, policymakers as well as researchers. We will focus only in the data referred to the corporate Boards of Directors (BODs). The complete data description of the data is given in x4.1. In particular, we do believe that social network analysis will be a useful to help to answer some relevant questions as: 1. Which will be the influence of women in society after the implementation of gender equality policies? 2. Do relations among BODs members will change? 3. Are mandatory gender quotas on corporate boards good policies?
