    Este trabajo estudia la relación entre resultados empresariales y representación femenina en cargos de consejos de administración y alta dirección en una muestra de grandes empresas españolas en el periodo 2000-2004. Los resultados del estudio evidencian que la escasa representación femenina en estos cargos es aún más acusada en los sectores industriales y tecnológicos que en los sectores orientados a los servicios. La representación femenina en cargos es mayor en los sectores con un porcentaje de mujeres en la plantilla superior a la media del conjunto de sectores. La significación estadística y el signo de la relación entre representación femenina y resultados de la empresa depende de la medida utilizada para cuantificar estas variables. La variación de los resultados empresariales en el periodo 2000-2004 no explica la variación de la representación femenina en cargos de consejo de administración y alta dirección en ese periodo. / This paper analyses the relationship between firm performance and women on boards and top management positions in a sample of large Spanish firms in the period 2000-2004. The results of the study indicate that the percentage of women on boards and top management teams is much lower in industrial and technological sectors than in services. The participation of women is greater in industries that have greater percentages of women in the workforce. The relationship between women participation on boards and firm performance depend on the measure of female representation and the measure of firm performance. The variation of firm performance in the period 2000-2004 does not explain the variation of female representation on boards and top management during that period.
