16 JUNE 2021: BETTER MARKETING FOR A BETTER WORLD FORUM
The Journal of Marketing Special Issue on Better Marketing for a Better World (BMBW) launched an initiative to bring together wide-ranging research to assess, illuminate, and debate whether, when, and how marketing contributes to a better world.
This forum will focus on economic and social empowerment, and explore how we can better leverage the power of marketing to contribute to this objective. In the first hour, authors will discuss the inspiration for their research, the implications of their findings for practice, and ideas for future research. In the second hour, participants will be invited to an intimate discussion and networking opportunity with the authors and other scholars and practitioners to discuss research questions and directions to help marketing contribute in this field. Please join if you want to learn more, engage with the authors, or simply listen.
