This is the first study to bring together clear-cut empirical evidence of the positive relationship between gender diversity leadership with greater innovation, corporate social responsibility, and firm financial performance. Based on an extensive research review, we develop the new SHEconomy-Management 3.0 Benefit Model & Framework of Gender Diversity Leadership for Greater Innovation, Corporate Social Responsibility, and Firm Financial Performance (also referred to as the SHEconomy ICF Leadership Model & Framework). Further, this is the first research to tie the SHEconomy and gender diversity to the philosophy of Management 3.0. This paper offers managerial implications and in-depth recommendations for future research to support the SHEconomy movement to decrease the gender gap in management for greater equity and to more successfully reach company objectives to achieve the triple bottom line to help make the world a better place for humankind.
