    Are you interested in mission-driven organizing? Please consider submitting your short paper to the EGOS sub-theme "Mission-driven Organizing: Embedding Social Purpose through People".

    Mission-driven organizing, like all organizing processes, involves navigating complexity in the form of a multiplicity of potentially inconsistent goals or values. Those who work to achieve a social mission organize to achieve it amid these organizational- and individual-level differences and potential impediments or enablers. Social missions are not always explicitly included in organizational strategies but can be contained in individual values and individual or group efforts. There is no "perfect" way to embed a social mission in organizations and thus, scholars have investigated the many elements involved. In this theme, we will investigate the neglected role of individuals, their occupational roles, and associated values in the embedding (or not) of social purpose.
