2017 Global B Corp Academic Community Roundtable -- Call for Papers

On October 4, 2017, in parallel with the annual B Corp Champions Retreat in Toronto, Canada, we will host the Second Annual Global B Corporation Academic Community Roundtable. This year’s theme is “The Role of the Academic Community in Scaling the B Corp Movement.” This event is open to university faculty and students and other researchers conducting research on Certified B Corporations and/or Benefit Corporations (hereafter “B Corps”). We are especially interested in research that examines impact assessment methodologies and the impact of B Corps. Additionally, our preference is for empirical studies, whether qualitative or quantitative. In addition to presenting groundbreaking research on B Corps, the Roundtable will provide opportunities for researchers to discuss data sources and methods for studying B Corps, provide updates on their research in progress, and allow the academic community to develop a roadmap of current and future research opportunities.

Through sponsorship from Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC), three (3) travel awards valued at up to USD $2200 are available. Additionally, IDRC has sponsored publication awards of USD $1000 for the first four presenters who subsequently publish their research in a peer-reviewed scholarly journal indexed by Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports.

The deadline to submit an extended abstract (not to exceed 1,000 words) is August 25, 2017.
