    Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

    Embark on an intellectual journey to extend and contribute to our groundbreaking multivolume handbook, "A Handbook of Stakeholder Capitalism in a Woke World."

    About the Handbook:

    Stakeholder capitalism represents a shift from a narrow focus on shareholder value maximization to a more inclusive and sustainable business model that seeks to benefit a diverse range of stakeholders. The "woke movement" encompasses a range of justice issues that emphasizes a commitment to addressing inequalities, discrimination, and oppression. Embrace or critique them, both stakeholder capitalism and the woke movement shape a world where inclusivity, sustainability, and social justice influence commercial activity.

    Why Write a Chapter?

    This is no compilation of ordinary chapters; it's an opportunity to greatly influence the conversation by engaging in edgy, riveting, and yes even controversial dialogues seldom found in traditional journals. To create a definitive and inclusive guide that will benefit scholars, academics, researchers, Ph.D. students, practitioners, and policymakers, we invite chapters in which authors openly but methodologically and scientifically express their scholarly perspectives on these contested topics.

    Chapter Topics of Interest:

    Explore the psychology of "wokeness," dissect socially conscious corporations, scrutinize diversity and inclusion, challenge stakeholder capitalism or the woke movement, unravel the impact on sustainability and climate initiatives, and much more! This is your chance to contribute to a holistic understanding of complex subjects and gain unparalleled visibility in the academic community.
