  • As the challenges of poverty, income inequality, environmental degradation, and global health continue to mount, there is a growing need for innovative approaches to seemingly intractable social problems. As organizations and their leaders develop new solutions, the boundaries between the for-profit and non-profit sectors have become increasingly blurred. Corporations engage in corporate social responsibility and social intrapreneurship, while traditional non-profits incorporate business practices in an effort to more efficiently and effectively pursue their social missions. In between, there are growing numbers of hybrid social enterprises whose core purpose is to address social issues through commercial ventures. This course explores these varied for-profit, non-profit, and hybrid models for managing and leading social innovation. We will examine the unique challenges and opportunities of each approach and the leadership skills needed to effectively address them. Through readings, class discussion, guest speakers, interactive exercises, and a final project with a community partner, students will master theoretical frameworks and gain practical knowledge and experience that will equip them to manage and lead social innovation in new and existing organizations across a variety of contexts.

  • This course examines the impact of emerging technologies in the workplace and their influence on organizational behavior and management strategies. The course will have a particular focus on algorithms employed in hiring and retention, and applications used to monitor employer productivity. The course also documents the impact of big data on the workplace, particularly employee health data. The course discusses the changing nature of work as influenced both by technological advancements and changing attitudes about the role of work and work/life balance. The course explores the connection between greater worker surveillance, the concomitant quantification of the worker, and the push for “on-demand” work and the implications of technological developments for inequality, worker privacy, productivity, and management strategies. The course also engages with employment laws that moderate the use of technology in the workplace with a particular focus on laws regarding the collection of employee data.
