OS4Future: An academic advocacy movement for our future

Publikation: Beiträge in SammelwerkenKapitelbegutachtet


Organization and management scholars are a relatively privileged group compared with colleagues from many other disciplines. Yet this privilege is created upon - and perpetuates - an economic system that is unequal, unjust, and unsustainable, one that destroys the basis of our livelihood through climate destruction and biodiversity loss. We propose that reforming the economy requires a revision in organizational and managerial knowledge: in response, we created Organization Scientists for Future (OS4Future). The prefiguring role model we offer in business schools is especially important, given our influence on future business leaders who will either maintain or change the economy. We present here the foundation, first actions and challenges of the OS4Future movement with the hope of attracting additional advocates and spurring imitation by other scholars.
