Research Workshop and Seminar Series

The Research office is pleased to invite you to the Research Workshop and Seminar Series on “Enabling Social Change through Humanizing Managerial Decision Making.” This event, organized by the Research Office, will take place on Friday, May 31, 2024, from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

About the workshop:

Enabling Social Change Through Humanizing Managerial Decision-Making Research both focus on addressing the mounting global challenges facing humanity. In response to these challenges, organizations are increasingly called to engage in social innovation in service (SIS). This workshop will explore how managerial decisions often lead to unintended consequences, a critical yet underexplored area in academic research. By examining this distinction and its implications, the workshop aims to enhance our understanding and foster effective strategies for addressing global issues through humanistic and transformative approaches in management.
