Shareholder activism has attracted significant attention in research ranging from finance to strategy, management, and organizational theory, as the phenomenon has become increasingly prominent in the last few decades. However, strategic implications of shareholder activism have remained vague. Specifically, the papers take the perspective of activists and other shareholders, of the management of targeted firms, and of the management of non- targeted firms. By bringing these perspectives togethe...

Research summary: Corporate scandals of the previous decade have heightened attention on board independence. Indeed, boards at many large firms are now so independent that the CEO is “home alone” as the lone inside member. We build upon “pro-insider” research within agency theory to explain how the growing trend toward lone-insider boards affects key outcomes and how external governance forces constrain their impact. We find evidence among S&P 1500 firms that having a lone-insider board is assoc...

Although a recent headline from the New York Times proclaimed, “Fewer Women Run Big Companies than Men Named John,x the percentage of women in upper echelon roles in Fortune 500 firms has increased significantly in the last decade (Catalyst, 2015). However, while extent research has devoted significant attention to addressing the barriers women face reaching and being successful in upper echelon roles (Eagly & Karau, 2002; Cook & Glass, 2014), we know little about the mechanisms utilized by fema...

Personality, much like many organizational phenomena, is often contradictory, leading to both positive and negative consequences. Although it's often tempting to categorize constructs like personality as either 'good' or 'bad,' understanding its paradoxical nature may be key to highlighting positive characteristics and downplaying the negative to advantage organizations and their members. In this symposium, we focus on the paradoxical nature of narcissism, or the inflated view of oneself associa...

Regarding what it will take for women to overcome institutional and personal barriers to success, Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook recently argued, “If we start acknowledging what the real issues are, we can solve them. It’s not that hard.” In response, the goal of this symposium is to connect practicing executives and scholars, in order to facilitate a continuing dialogue between these groups regarding the difficulties women face as they climb the corporate ladder and the issues they face once ...

As a new perspective for understanding firm responsiveness to stakeholder concerns, we propose a strategic cognition view of issue salience—that is, the degree to which a stakeholder issue resonates with and is prioritized by management. Specifically, we explain how a firm’s cognitive structures of organizational identity and strategic frames use different core logics to influence managerial interpretation of an issue as salient. We then present a typology of firm responsiveness and suggest that...
