CALL FOR PROPOSALS
Giving Voice to Values Book Series with Greenleaf Publishing
The Giving Voice to Values initiative has teamed up with Greenleaf Publishing (an imprint of Routledge) to produce a collection of books on business ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR) that will bring a practical, solutions-oriented, skill-building approach to the salient questions of values-driven leadership.
Giving Voice to Values – the curriculum, the pedagogy and the research upon which it is based – was designed to transform the foundational assumptions that underlie the teaching of business ethics and equip future business leaders not only to know what is right - but how to make it happen.
To this end, proposals are invited for concise (average 50,000 words, but shorter will be considered) business education and professional development books geared to the undergraduate, MBA and executive education markets, as well as practitioners. 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 (CSR) as it has evolved, the intention of this collection is to emphasize research and/or experience-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.
Greenleaf Publishing, a leading publisher in the areas of responsible management, ethics and social responsibility, has recently joined Routledge, enabling the further development and strengthening of the list and improved international impact. Greenleaf Publishing and Routledge publish many important titles in the areas of corporate governance and social responsibility.
Interested authors are invited to discuss their ideas with Mary C. Gentile.
