Workshop Information

Benefit Corporations (B Corps) have risen in popularity as a force for good. This trend is a direct consequence of organizations and their leaders embracing the concept of inclusive leadership, collaborative managerial practices, and making positive social and ecological impacts beyond shareholder wealth creation. In an age of declining resources and increasing calamities resulting in unprecedented devastation and loss of life linked to global warming, is it time for B-Schools to embrace new concepts and tools? Consistent with the conference theme and the Teaching Community’s interest in creating new and impactful learning experiences, it his PDW, leaders from the B Corp Community will interact with participants in an round-table setting to co-create unique pedagogical cases that participants can use in their classrooms. An added bonus of this workshop is that issues pertaining to teaching online with cases will be covered and participants will be offered the opportunity to join a group of scholars in the B-Corp Research and Teaching Initiative underway.

The Teaching Community is interested in enabling effective practices of strategic management education and skill development through workshops on improving teaching, learning and engagement of students in the classroom. Our workshop is carefully designed to address and achieve these goals. We take our plan one step further by including intimate interaction and cross-pollination of ideas between academics and B Corp practitioners in order to marry rigor with relevance. The development of teaching skills and techniques is aimed at participants of all levels, i.e., senior, mid-career, and young scholar-teachers, as well as applicable to multi-cultural settings. Additionally, issues embedded in inclusive leadership and management of B Corporations at the heart of this PDW are carefully selected to appeal to a wide audience.

This session is designed for 165 minutes (2 hrs 45 mins) of a highly interactive experience among B Corp executives, case discussion leaders (listed below) and PDW participants.
