    Giving Voice to Values Series

    The Giving Voice to Values series is a collection of books on Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility that brings a practical, solutions-oriented, skill-building approach to the salient questions of values-driven leadership.

    Giving Voice to Values (GVV) - the curriculum, the pedagogy, and the research - is created and directed by Mary C. Gentile, formerly the Richard M. Waitzer Bicentennial Professor of Ethics at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, Senior Advisor at the Aspen Institute Business & Society Program and consultant on management education and leadership development. The purpose of GVV is to transform the foundational assumptions upon which the teaching of business ethics is based and, importantly, to equip future business leaders to not only know what is right - but how to make it happen. 


    A Note from the New Editors - Mary Gentile, the creator of Giving Voice to Values (GVV), has been synonymous with all things GVV since the publication of her groundbreaking book in 2010.


    On May 25, 2022, Professor Gentile retired from her academic post as the Richard M. Waitzer Bicentennial Professor of Ethics at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business.


    While Professor Gentile will continue to champion GVV through speaking and consulting engagements with organizations worldwide, she invited the three of us to assume editorial responsibilities for the GVV Book Series from Routledge Publishing/Greenleaf Imprint.

    We are honored by the trust of Mary and the Routledge team. We are thrilled that the GVV Book Series will continue providing critical, action-oriented knowledge and strategies for current and future leaders.


    How to submit

    Proposals are invited for concise (c. 50,000 words) business education books geared to the professional, undergraduate, MBA and executive education markets. Books may be focused upon a functional area (e.g., Accounting Ethics); an industry (e.g., Ethics in the Financial Sector); a regional area (e.g., Practical Ethics in India); or some combination of the above. 

    Although it is fully expected that some manuscripts may well include a focus upon the theory and analysis of ethical questions, or the history and benchmarks of Corporate Social Responsibility as it has evolved, the intention of this Collection is to emphasize research-based practical examples and guidance on how to positively enact values-driven leadership positions, rather than to focus solely or primarily upon ethical debate. In this way, these books will be useful not only in traditional business ethics and CSR courses, but also in other core management disciplines and applied executive programs.
