The goal of the Focused Workshop Program is to expand and diversify the portfolio of ARCS activities to include smaller events designed to address specific research questions. There are no restrictions on the workshop format or topic, and we encourage creative proposals.
To mark our 10th anniversary, ARCS is now accepting proposals for focused workshops designed to advance progress on key sustainability issues. All proposals must be research-oriented and identify specific intended outcomes but are encouraged to involve practitioners as well as academic researchers.
The Focused Workshop Program is modeled in part on a pilot project entitled “Corporate Sustainability 2.0: Leading Systemic Change” that was funded by the Borchard Foundation and held in June 2016. That event brought together a small group of researchers representing 10 ARCS member schools for 3 days of focused reflection. Outcomes of the workshop include an article in California Management Review aimed at practitioners and a special issue of Organization and Environment on “Leading Corporate Sustainability.” The success of the small workshop format encouraged ARCS to create an ongoing program.
Workshop proposers must be individual members of ARCS, and preference will be given to active participants in recent ARCS events. Click here to become a member.
The workshop will be an annual event, with at most one award to be granted each year. The event should be held by August 30, 2019.
