    Social Movements, Stakeholders, and Non-Market Strategy (#13002)


    Sponsors: OMT, STR, SIM, ONE

    Time: Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 10:00 am to 12:30 am

    Place: Marriott Chicago Downtown - Magnificent Mile in Chicago D


    Speakers: Michael Lenox (Darden), Katherine Kellogg (MIT), Xiaowei Rose Luo (INSEAD), Mark Mizruchi (UMichigan), Timothy Werner (UT Austin)


    Civil society groups have had a significant impact on markets and economically-driven organizations over the past century. From the environmental and civil rights protests of the 1960s to contemporary social-media movements combating sexual harassment, racism, and xenophobia, activist organizations and their participants have shaped not only firm behavior, but also industry's willingness to respond and even participate in civil society.


    For the past three years, we have convened this professional development workshop (PDW) as a means of integrating the various research lenses through which social movements and markets are studied. This year, we are including a focus on recent geopolitical trends – the emergence of populism and nationalism, and the collective responses to it – and the implications for firms, markets, and stakeholders.


    Our goal is to unite the numerous researchers interested in the relationship between social movements and firms, to advance scholarly efforts in this area, and to build a community of scholars with related interests. We are particularly interested in broaden the scope of our community through participation of scholars who have not yet studied social movements and markets, but who would like to contribute to this area of work in the future.


    The PDW is composed of two segments. First, a panel of five experts will discuss promising new directions for the study of social movements, stakeholders, and non-market strategy. These talks will be followed by Q&A with the audience. The second segment will feature research round-tables where participants will receive feedback from leading scholars and fellow participants on new research ideas or issues faced with current projects.
