Doctoral Candidates Invited to Submit Papers for Bentley University Next Generation Workshop on Environmental, Social and Governance Issues, Deadline February 15, 2012
Bentley University announces a call for submissions to doctoral candidates to submit papers for consideration in the fourth annual Next Generation ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) Workshop, held in conjunction with the Bentley Global Business Ethics Symposium the week of May 20, 2012. Three competitively selected doctoral students will join the following three internationally recognized experts in ESG-related research: Shawn Berman, associate professor of management and Bill Daniels Ethics Fellow, University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management; Andrew Hoffman, Holcim (U.S.) Professor of Sustainable Enterprise, University of Michigan; and Kathy Rehbein, associate professor of management, Marquette University. The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2012.
Students and experts will work together to promote research in the ESG area, and will have the opportunity to participate in the internationally recognized Bentley “Teaching Business Ethics” workshop. Applications are welcome from students in disciplines including management, accountancy, political science, philosophy, economics, environmental studies, information systems and sociology, among others.
Additional guidelines include:
- Participants must be currently enrolled in a doctoral program, preferably in their second or third year, and their research must be ESG-related.
- Students should submit a 5,000- to 7,000-word paper, which will be evaluated by a conference coordinating committee. It should be single-authored and a “work in progress.”
The selection will be based on relevance to the conference focus, quality of research, practical relevance and clarity of research description. Selected students will be awarded an expense stipend for travel and participation.
Submissions must be emailed by February 15 to Cynthia Clark, director of the Harold S. Geneen Institute of Corporate Governance, at firstname.lastname@example.org
