  • 1.  BAIC Webinar Series: "Cooperating in an Era of Divide" Panel Discussion, 9 June 2021

    Posted 16 days ago

    We are delighted to invite you to our forthcoming event in the Bocconi Assembly for Innovation and Cooperation (BAIC) Webinar Series on Wednesday 9th June at 5pm-6.30pm (CEST)/11am-12.30pm (EDT).


    In this panel, "Cooperating in an Era of Divide", we bring together three prominent scholars whose expertise speaks to different aspects of the tension between our tendency to cooperate and our instinct to polarize:

    • Paul Adler, Professor and Harold Quinton Chair in Business Policy at the Marshall School of Business, University of Southern California
    • Rajshree Agarwal, Rudolph Lamone Professor of Entrepreneurship & Strategy at the Robert H. Smith School of Business, University of Maryland
    • Anita McGahan, Professor and Rotman Chair in Management at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto


    Facilitated by Giada Di Stefano, the panelists will address questions, such as: What explains the success of collaboration in an era of division? How has this changed compared to traditional cooperation? How can cooperation be sustained when public policy conflicts with personal interest? Where do current theories fail and where do we need new perspectives to better understand the emerging reality of cooperation? How do these dynamics impact the very role of the firm and managers in our society? And finally, is there anything we can do to reverse this tendency towards segregation, separation, and divide? 


    Further information about this event and our panelists is available on the BAIC series web page. To receive the link to attend this webinar, please register here.


    We hope you can join us for this and other events in this series. Future speakers include Caroline Flammer, Dan Levinthal, and Brian Silverman. Full details are available on the website.
