Join us for a live debate on impact-driven research at an All-Academy PDW!!!
A growing number of management scholars aim to combine their academic research with real-world impact, through taking a stance on pressing societal issues and combining activism with scientific rigor. Scholars' focus can vary from prioritizing their "activist" role or their "scientist" role. In this PDW, we explore how research may engage in societal change not only through the traditional instruments of activism (e.g., protests, demonstrations, public education) but also through the traditional instruments of science (e.g., conducting scientific research to advance knowledge). The purpose of this PDW is to initiate a more structured discussion about being in the spectrum from "Scientific Activist" to "Activist Scientist" with the aim of establishing rigorous methods for engaging closely with managers as a commonly accepted practice. The session will include a panel debate and breakout discussions.
