Pitt Business faculty member Paul T. Harper is co-author of a Journal of Business Ethics special issue on the topic of racial justice.
The journal’s “Virtual Special Issue on Eradicating Structural Racism: What is the Role of the Corporation?” was published recently online.
In an array of articles that examine how corporate policy, structure and culture can propagate racial bias, the special issue revisits Harper’s 2019 article, “The Symbolic Imagination: Plato and Contemporary Business Ethics,” which examines how moral imagination can drive predatory behavior.
Harper is a clinical assistant professor of business administration in the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, where his research and teaching are focused on entrepreneurship, strategy and business ethics. Harper’s research interests include international entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship and inclusive innovation.
