What Does Sustainability Mean for Business?

Emerging Trends that Can Affect the Financial Future of an Organization 

AFP Edmonton is pleased to present Joel Gehman, PhD, Assistant Professor, Alberta School of Business.

Please join us on May 24th where Joel will explore what Sustainability Means for Business. You'll get to participate as he focuses on the intersection of sustainability and finance/investing in his engaging and interactive presentation.

Joel Gehman is an Assistant Professor of Strategic Management and Organization. He studies sustainability, innovation and strategy. In particular, he investigates how concerns related to sustainability and values affect organizational strategies, technology innovation, and institutional arrangements.And reciprocally, how organizations, innovation and institutions affect the emergence and trajectories of such concerns.

In approaching these questions, Gehman draws primarily on organization theory, together with insights from strategic management, and science and technology studies. His work also takes a process perspective, focusing on the organization of concerns over place and time.

Ongoing research examines these issues in the     context of technology entrepreneurship, BCorporations, unconventional shale gas drilling, hydraulic fracturing patents, shareholder activism, multinational divestitures, social license to operate, cultural understandings of risk, and university technology spinouts, among others.

Before becoming a professor, Gehman spent 13 years in industry. He regularly advises and consults with diverse organizations. He graduated from Cornell University (B.S.) and the Pennsylvania State University (Ph.D.).
