Humanistic Management

As we did last year, the Humanistic Management Network (www.humanetwork.org) is inviting presentations for the AOM preconference on August 4, 2016 in Anaheim, CA. (The exact location is still to be confirmed).
We are inviting all scholars working on the protection of human dignity and thepromotion of human well-being within the context of organizations.  Presentations can span traditional scholarly work and pedagogical topics, to perspectives from practice and public policy. While the presentations are mainly to inform the growing community of HM scholars there is also an opportunity to prepare submissions for the Humanistic Management Journal published by Springer/Nature:

The Humanistic Management Journal spans disparate fields including business ethics, environmental sustainability, social responsibility and management studies, in a humanistic research paradigm. It is a venue for thought leaders from academia, practice and public policy:
• interested in a life-conducive economic system
• embracing an Aristotelian conception of organizing/management aiming at “eudaimonia” also reflected in Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum’s work.
• following the trend in humanistic management toward social entrepreneurship and cooperative capitalism
• viewing the planetary boundaries as driver of innovation for authentic and sustainable human flourishing
• considering the possibility of a Global ethos based on universal values (e.g. Hans Kuengs Global Ethic)
• working in the areas of management including but not limited to governance, strategy, flourishing, happiness, social innovation, empowerment, common good creation etc.

If you are interested and willing to present please contact ojaime@fordham.edu (cc'pirson@fordham.edu) with topic area by April 30.
