Social Impact Award 2013


Awards for Excellence

Emerald firmly believes in publishing research which has real-world applications ranging from use in the classroom, contributing to the body of knowledge, research which influences public thinking and policy making, to research which has a direct application to the world of work, bridging the gap between theory and practice. One of the ways we seek to demonstrate this by making it more transparent to researchers, readers and users, that we seek to publish research which makes a tangible difference for the good of society. As a definition, the term ‘social impact’ refers to how our actions affect the social fabric of the community and wellbeing of individuals and families. In light of this we launched the Social Impact Award in 2010.

The shortlist and winning paper was judged and chosen by a panel of experts from the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI), the largest community of businesses and business schools/learning institutions uniquely focused on developing a “new” generation of globally responsible leaders. The winning paper is:
