Management & Social Justice
Fall 2022
Taught By: Nidhi Srinivas
Section: A

CRN: 11937

Credits: 3

The course facilitates an examination of how and if management and managers can be vehicles to advance social justice in different forms - ecological, economic, racial, sexual or gender, design etc. Grounded in critical social theories, it explores how and if someone interested in using management ideas to generate social justice inhabits a contradiction. And is it possible to think of management in terms of larger questions of social justice, to create workplaces and organizations in general that are more democratic and inclusive? The course requires students to attend or view recordings of the Management & Social Justice Conversation Series, ground them in the literature and take an actively engaged and critically reflective stance towards the topics and organizations we study. We will look at themes such as emancipatory management practices, forms of inclusion in workplaces, intersectional management practices, indigenous knowledge/politics, and ecological activism, and organizations. Students are encouraged to submit their final products to be featured in the conversation series for the following year.
