This presentation is about the role of compassion in business and management research. Professor Tsui will begin with presenting some facts about suffering in our societies, then go on to an analysis of increasing instances of compassion, including corporate compassion, and some exciting research on the positive results and benefits of caring. She then turns her attention to us, members of the management research profession and ask the question of 揥hat does compassion mean for us? Why should we care? The presentation will end with a challenge to all management researchers to take up the courage of engaging in more compassionate research and less dispassionate research because the worth of scholarship has to be proven by its service to society.
