Abstracts are currently being accepted for the Symposium “Achieving Ethical Leadership” until the deadline of September 1, 2016 at midnight Pacific time. The Symposium will be a special feature of the Journal of Leadership Studies with an anticipated publication date of Fall 2017 for approved final manuscripts. Upon receipt of abstracts, the Symposium’s editors will review all submissions and select several authors whose abstracts meet the Symposium’s criteria and demonstrate unique perspectives regarding achieving ethical leadership. Authors whose abstracts are accepted will be notified via email on November 1, 2016. These authors will then be asked to write a full manuscript (about 1000-3000 words) of their abstract topic and submit it for final review by February 1, 2017. All approved manuscripts will be published and featured in the Symposium section of the Journal of Leadership Studies in Fall 2017.
This Symposium will serve to elicit discussion about the state of ethics and ethical failures among leadership in the global community. Taking this further, we would like to encourage the generation of ideas as to how leadership scholars can help to mitigate this trend through improved ethics education, how to encourage improved ethical behaviors among leaders and stakeholders in multicultural settings and in different organizational contexts (business, non-profit, political, international), and through improved practices.
Suitable submissions might address the following topics:
What are the critical ethical and moral concerns in leadership today?
What steps and actions have been taken to overcome these ethical and moral concerns?
What role may we play as scholars in the effort to affect change in regard to ethical and moral leadership?
What solutions can be implemented to affect long-lasting and effective change in the world of business, political, and cross-cultural leadership?
What innovative practices can be implemented through ethics education, organizational culture, improved leadership screening practices, or other unique ways to help mitigate the trend of unethical leadership and encourage stronger ethical leadership?
