ADVOCACY

Interdisciplinary research supports the Network’s advocacy through business columns, fora, and dialogues with business leaders, recognition programs, collaborative projects with business-oriented organizations and policy advocacies with government agencies and legislative offices.

It collaborates with the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP) in promoting socially responsible business practice and the Shareholders Association of the Philippines (SharePHIL) in promoting inclusive governance of publicly-listed corporations.  In partnership with SharePHIL, the network successfully petitioned the Securities and Exchange Commission to encourage corporate boards to attend to the needs of the corporations’ various stakeholders aside from stockholders.

The Network maintains the Managing for Society column in The Manila Times where faculty in management and related disciplines promote ideas and practices related to humanistic management.  It also contributes to the View from Taft column in BusinessWorld.
