Brown honored with Best Published Paper Award

Hieken Professor of Business Ethics Jill Brown received the 2022 Best Published Paper Award from the International Association of Business and Society (IABS). Brown was recognized for a paper about social entrepreneurs that appeared in the journal Entrepreneurship, Theory & Practice. In it, she and her co-authors investigate how social enterprises (SEs) often find themselves subject to critique from observers who accuse the company of being more focused on consumer dollars than making a tangible impact through their social mission. They also share a process model they developed to help SEs navigate and maintain moral legitimacy for long-term stakeholder support.

Vroman: Serving the community through consulting

Lecturer Susan Vroman believes in giving Bentley students opportunities to act as a “force for good.” For her undergraduate and graduate consulting courses, she works with the BCSLCE to identify nonprofit community partners facing organizational challenges; these groups then become clients for Vroman’s students, who work in teams to assess and address the organization’s unique needs. She’s proud of the difference her students are making, noting that “the consulting teams deliver findings, recommendations and deliverables (including brand playbooks, marketing campaigns, and logistical processes) that clients have actually adopted.”
