Call for Submissions: The 6th Annual Next Generation ESG Workshop

One-on-One Scholarly Training for Select PhD students

Due: February 14, 2014

The Next Generation Workshop focusing on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues is a two-day event that brings together promising doctoral researchers and world-leading experts in ESG-related research, to foster these young researchers’ talents. More broadly, the workshop aims to establish a dialogue between current and future ESG researchers. 

Three internationally recognized experts are invited to campus for three days May 19-21st, 2014, in conjunction with the Bentley Global Business Ethics Symposium. They will join a group of competitively chosen doctoral students in a series of presentations and discussions, including one-on-one feedback between expert and student. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Bentley’s highly regarded Teaching Business Ethics Workshop, held the same week.

Student Selection 

Doctoral students working in relevant areas are invited to submit papers to participate in the Next Generation ESG Workshop. We seek candidates from institutions worldwide and from different theoretical and methodological traditions. The interdisciplinary workshop welcomes applications from students in management, political science, philosophy, economics, environmental studies and sociology, to name a few. Participants must be currently enrolled in a doctoral program, preferably in their third year; their research must be ESG related.  

Students should submit a paper of 5,000 to 7,000 words to be evaluated by a conference coordinating committee prior to the workshop. Selection criteria are the paper’s relevance to the conference focus, quality of research, practical relevance, and clarity of research description. Please note that the submission should have one author and represent work that is “in progress” but also well thought out and articulated. Selection is competitive, with students awarded stipends for travel and participation.

Please email submissions by February 14, 2014, to:

Cynthia Clark, PhD  |  Director, Harold S. Geneen Institute of Corporate Governance
