Webinar to examine resource-based competition amongst social firms

Social firms aim to solve social and environmental problems, but, along the way, they may compete with one another for resources. Recent research highlights implications for these firms working both independently and collaboratively to solve broader issues.

Research by Wesley Helms, Associate Professor of Strategic Management and Social Innovation Research Scholar at the Goodman School of Business, reveals the surprising competitive nature of firms pursuing their social and environmental goals.

On Friday, Nov. 12, Helms will present his findings at Goodman’s Luncheon Speaker Series event during his talk, “Competing for Good: How Organizational Hybridity Challenges Inter-Organizational Categorization and Cross-Sector Value Creation.”

The Goodman speaker series provides faculty, staff and students with an informal opportunity to listen and discuss recent advances in research, teaching and practices with business colleagues virtually.

Helms’ talk will take place online Friday, Nov. 12 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. All are welcome to attend and can RSVP to receive a link to the session by emailing Pina Mucciarelli at pmucciarelli@brocku.ca
