The #thinklist was designed to highlight influential faculty thinkers on social media on issues of responsible business. It was created in recognition of the value of discussions we have online, and in the hope of sharing insights with a wider community. Since the original list, the Centre for Business, Organisations and Society has sought to recognise that there are many influential scholars in our community whose voices can be hidden by metrics and through dynamics of power. In August the #thinklist30 highlighted influential women in the field.
The #ThinklistAmplify aims to foreground the voices of racialized scholars in the field. It is intended to spotlight expertise, and serve as an evolving resource to facilitate connections and collaboration among scholars working in responsible business. The list acknowledges that the academic experience, exposure and recognition – online and offline – is shaped by dynamics of power, including the social process of racialization.
Nominations were sought by curators from within the responsible business community and included with nominees consent, hoping to contribute a springboard from which we can discuss these issues, build community, and strategise.
From this starting point, CBOS will be hosting a webinar with the curators and some speakers from the list, to share insights into the opportunities and challenges of engaging with social media as a scholar of responsible business. We will also have a chance to unpack some of the tensions and debates that producing this list has brought into focus, including differences in local contexts across the globe, accounting for the intersectionality of power, and the importance of terms. We will also be spotlighting the work of scholars from the list over the coming months.
