This paper focuses on the socialisation process of female heirs’ pathways to leadership in family businesses. Findings from the first part of a two stage study which considers female succession to management from the family unit’s perspective are presented. An ecological model of the family socialization process which takes into account the family unit in the business is adopted. Little systematic research has been conducted which seeks to understand the contextual and individual factors that project women into positions of leadership within the family firm (Sharma, 2004:14). Findings suggest that daughters are socialised in various ways.
