Civil society groups have had a significant impact on markets and economically-driven organizations over the past century. From the rise of the environmental movement and the implementation of the Clean Air Act to Occupy Wall Street’s efforts to highlight income inequality, activist organizations and their participants have shaped not only firm behavior, but also industry’s willingness to respond to civil society at large.

In our third year of this workshop, we are turning our focus outward, exploring the other areas of management research that can both inform—and be informed by—the study of activism and firms. Our goal is to unite the numerous researchers interested in the relationship between social movements and firms to advance scholarly efforts in this area and to build a community of scholars with related interests. Additionally, we hope to broaden the scope of our community by inviting the participation of scholars who have not yet studied social movements and markets, but who would like to contribute to this area of work in the future.

This PDW consists of two segments. In the first, a panel of four experts will discuss how the study of social movements, stakeholders, and nonmarket strategy can inform, and be informed by, their respective areas of interest - followed by a question and answer session with the audience. The second segment will feature research round-tables, where participants will receive feedback from leading scholars and fellow participants on new research ideas or issues faced with current projects.
Participation is open for the speaker panel and Q&A session, but pre-registration is required for the research round-table segment. To apply for the round-tables, please submit a 3-5 pg description of your research idea or problem to Jocelyn Leitzinger and Brayden King at by July 1. At the beginning of your submission, please include your name, title, and school affiliation, and list your top three discussant preferences. To ensure enough discussion time for each participant, there will be a limited number of positions available.

Pre-registration is required for this session. Please contact the workshop organizer at to obtain the approval code. To register online, please visit The deadline to register online is August 5, 2017.
