Business schools offering lessons on social responsibility – 08/16/10
From the article: Changing attitudes about corporate social responsibility and strategies for non-profit partnerships can be attributed at least in part to a new generation of MBAs and the more nuanced thinking they are bringing to the topic. Timothy Feddersen says that when he joined the faculty of Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management in 1995 as a professor of managerial economics and decision sciences, there was scant mention of social responsibility in the curriculum. “Beginning in 2000, a number of students came into the program looking for a way to combine making a difference in the world with a more traditional career goal,” he recalls. To accommodate that interest, Northwestern in 2005 launched the Social Enterprise at Kellogg program. Known as SEEK, the program has two goals, according to Mr. Feddersen: first, to give every Kellogg student a foundation in how business and society interact by infusing social responsibility theory and case studies into all core courses, and second, to provide more intensive coursework and field experiences for students who opt to make SEEK a concentration of their graduate work….Mr. Feddersen says that while he expects a small percentage of his SEEK graduates will look for opportunities with firms devoted exclusively to a social responsibility mission, a larger group will look for opportunities to influence environmental, development, social justice and other issues from within more traditional corporations. “They are looking for ways to leverage business to address these issues, which will have a profound impact on their lives and on our society,” he says.

The Power Trip – 08/14/10
From the article: Why does power lead people to flirt with interns and solicit bribes and fudge financial documents? According to psychologists, one of the main problems with authority is that it makes us less sympathetic to the concerns and emotions of others. For instance, several studies have found that people in positions of authority are more likely to rely on stereotypes and generalizations when judging other people. They also spend much less time making eye contact, at least when a person without power is talking. Consider a recent study led by Adam Galinsky, a psychologist at Northwestern University. Mr. Galinsky and colleagues began by asking subjects to either describe an experience in which they had lots of power or a time when they felt utterly powerless. Then the psychologists asked the subjects to draw the letter E on their foreheads. Those primed with feelings of power were much more likely to draw the letter backwards, at least when seen by another person. Mr. Galinsky argues that this effect is triggered by the myopia of power, which makes it much harder to imagine the world from the perspective of someone else. We draw the letter backwards because we don't care about the viewpoint of others.

Baseball’s Praised Diversity Is Stranded at First Base – 08/12/10
From the article: As baseball’s overall numbers show, Commissioner Bud Selig has made diversity a top priority. In 1999 — three years before the N.F.L. instituted a similar rule — Selig ordered that teams interview at least one minority candidate for each opening for manager, general manager, assistant general manager, director of player development and director of scouting. But no such rule exists for coaching positions. Where the rule is in place, it has had the intended results: To start the season, baseball had five minority general managers and nine managers, numbers that reflect well on the sport’s diversity efforts. But diversity among the third-base coaching ranks has been in decline for the past five years, from a peak of 12 in 2005 to 7 this season, and the racial disparity between first- and third-base coaches has increased. “At the manager position, there was an intervention,” said Katherine Phillips, a professor at Northwestern University and an expert on workplace diversity. “Sometimes you do have to intervene.”
