Welcome to the Shared Value Initiative’s Academic Portal, a resource for professors, researchers, and students to access shared value research and connect with other academics in the social innovation community.
Shared value is an emerging field of study in business, policy, and sustainability programs. Many in our community are actively teaching shared value as an approach, and many more are researching the concept for inclusion in peer-reviewed papers, dissertations, and case studies. We hope this portal will provide you with resources that will be helpful to those looking to deepen their shared value knowledge and incorporate concepts and cases into their work.
- Curated list of core literature: Our best scholarship including research reports, case studies, links to articles, and more.
- Case example library: A global crowdsourced list; read through 150+ examples and contribute your own.
- General resources: Filter by type, region, industry, and social issue.
This is also a platform where you can contribute your own research and approaches to benefit the broader academic community. This community of practice will provide opportunities for professors, researchers, and students to connect with one another and with key corporate and partner practitioners to enhance and deepen the shared value field.
Here's how to get started:
- Make sure you're registered for the general practitioner community here on sharedvalue.org. It's free and you'll receive shared value updates via email.
- Visit the academic discussion forum to read special updates catered to an academic audience.
- Browse the general member directory to connect with other researchers and potential collaborators.
- Start posting content. Write a blog post, test your latest findings, ask a research question, or comment on another post.
- Contribute to the Shared Value Research Agenda for the coming year.
This community is a work in progress, so we also want to hear from you. What would be useful to your shared value scholarship and application in the classroom? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
