Giving Voice to Values

Series Editor: Mary C. Gentile

The Giving Voice to Values series is a collection of books on Business Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility that brings a practical, solutions-oriented, skill-building approach to the salient questions of values-driven leadership.

Giving Voice to Values (GVV: ) – the curriculum, the pedagogy and the research upon which it is based –was designed to transform the foundational assumptions upon which the teaching of business ethics is based, and importantly, to equip future business leaders to not only know what is right — but how to make it happen.

Proposals are invited for concise (50,000 words) business education books geared to the undergraduate, MBA and executive education markets. Books may be focused upon a functional area (e.g., Accounting Ethics); an industry (e.g., Ethics in the Financial Sector); a regional area (e.g., Practical Ethics in India); or some combination of the above.

Although it is fully expected that some manuscripts may well include a focus upon the theory and analysis of ethical questions, or the history and benchmarks of Corporate Social Responsibility as it has evolved, the intention of this Collection is to emphasize research-based practical examples and guidance on how to positively enact values-driven leadership positions, rather than to focus solely or primarily upon ethical debate. In this way, these books will be useful not only in traditional business ethics and CSR courses, but also in other core management disciplines and applied executive programs.
