    SMS 2023 Stakeholder Strategy Paper Development Workshop
    Scheduled: Saturday, September 30, 2023, 09:00 AM - 12:00 PM (EST)
    Application Deadline: July 31, 2023

    This PDW aims to provide scholars with developmental feedback on their current research ideas and papers in the field of stakeholder-related research and offer a stimulating discussion on new research areas in stakeholder strategy. Reflecting the 2023 SMS Conference theme of "Aligning Strategy, Corporate Governance, and Resource Allocation in Turbulent Environments," the panelists will discuss innovations in stakeholder theory, broadly construed, to inspire new research on how firms' stakeholder strategies can help them adapt to turbulent environments.

    The PDW will feature an initial panel open to all SMS attendees, and small-group paper feedback sessions open only to accepted participants. While the paper feedback sessions are also open to all attendees interested in applying, preference will be given to doctoral students and early- to mid-career academics.
