Underrepresented Perspectives

Special issue call for papers from The CASE Journal

Guest Editors

Mary K. Foster and Pamela E. Queen

The Deadline for the submission of papers is January 22nd 2018.

Blacks/African Americans represent about 12% of the U.S. population(1), but are significantly underrepresented in the business world:

•    Black men and women account for 4.7% of executive team members in the Fortune 100 (thetop 100 U.S. companies by revenue)(2)
•    At smaller companies, African Americans hold an estimated 6.7% of the nation’s 16.2 million “management” jobs(3)

Increasing diversity in organizations is key to maximizing economic growth(4), innovation(5), and raising the standard of living.

Teaching cases which capture the stories, voices, and experiences of Blacks in business can serve as role models and inspiration for students of color, and for other students these cases may help them better understand and interact with people in an increasingly diverse world.

• Accounting
