Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) / Corporate Responsibility (CR), is situated at the interface of business and society.

Much work has been done on the impact of business on society and the ways in which businesses have sought to reduce their harmful impacts and/or contribute to society’s wellbeing.

But business and society do not speak with homogeneous voices and nor do the researchers who explore them.

A wide range of different actors are relevant in CR, each have different worldviews, values, beliefs and interests, different degrees of influence, and different ways of communicating. Stakeholder groups themselves do not always speak with one voice. This plurality of voices makes it difficult to navigate the path toward CR and has highly relevant implications for teaching and practice. Furthermore, a multitude of different lenses have been used to theorize CR.

Consequently, the vast and complex patchwork of voices provides a challenging landscape as well as a rich opportunity for research.

#Audencia_CR3

Giving voice to unheard actors in CR

This is an invitation to consider actors often marginalized or overlooked in CR. We propose to explore the identities, needs and demands of these actors, their roles and impacts, and their interactions with business.

Managing multiple voices by businesses and entrepreneurs

We invite participants to look at the complex task faced by businesses and entrepreneurs of navigating multiple demands from different actors and the mechanisms which have been developed to aid and facilitate this process (e.g. confrontation, collaboration).

Navigating the usual and unusual theoretical voices in CR research

A wide range of theoretical perspectives have been used to explore CR from a management perspective but also borrowing from other disciplines. This is an invitation to reflect on the different theoretical voices, their value and limitations and to explore new lenses through which to study CR.

Encouraging different voices in CR education

This is an invitation to look into ways to bring a wide range of voices into the learning environment. We welcome theories and activities which offer suggestions on how to prepare students for engaging with the multiple voices they will face as managers.
