Dear SBM Friends, please find below an invitation for an online conference from our colleagues Chris Dembek and Fyodor Ovchinnikov …
If your area of research or practice touches the emerging field of social ventures that leverage unconventional types of leadership, governance, business models and ownership, we are cordially inviting you to join your fellow researchers and practitioners for an online social lab organized by the University of Melbourne Asia Pacific Social Impact Centre and the Institute for Evolutionary Leadership in partnership with the Humanistic Management Network and a number of other organizations on June 25 – July 2, 2015.
The purpose of this lab is to identify important research questions and generate valuable insights for practitioners, as well as to ignite new scholar-practitioner collaborations. The insights that emerge from this social lab experience will seed an in-person professional development workshop (PDW) in Vancouver on August 9th as part of the AOM Annual Meeting. Participants in the PDW will prototype actionable projects to advance scholar-practitioner collaboration and make tangible impact on both theory and practice in the related fields. It is expected that many people will participate in both the virtual Governance Lab and the PDW, although it is fine for people to only join one or the other.
If you have any questions or would like to explore sponsorship or partnership opportunities, please contact us at the coordinates below. We hope to see you at the Governance Lab!
