    Overview

    Organizations can suffer from negative evaluations when they fail to meet stakeholders' expectations. A growing number of studies have shown that key stakeholders react adversely to organizations, not only for their disruptive activities but also for their inaction or lack of progress towards social and environmental problems such as global warming, gender inequality, data protection issues, and anti-abortion legislation. However, little has been said regarding when and how initial negative reactions can spread from a subgroup to a broader set of audiences, and when and how these negative evaluations intensify, leading to adverse outcomes for the focal organization.

    This symposium brings together leading scholars in the area to discuss 1) the different mechanisms from the perspectives of management, sociology, social psychology, and political science that might drive this escalation; 2) how these mechanisms may intertwine and lead to different dynamics and outcomes for organizations; 3) the new insights and a future research agenda for research on negative social evaluations.

    Format

    The format of the 90-minute symposium will be as follows:

    • 5-minute introduction of the topic and the panelists
    • 10-minute per panelist to discuss the topic from different perspectives
    • 10-minute for the discussant to provide integrative comments and insights
    • 30-minute Q&A
    • 5-minute Wrap-up

    We welcome participants to join our conversation physically or online. We encourage participants to share with us questions to the panelists in advance here by August 4th. Please also feel free to reach out to organizers if you have any questions about the symposium:
