Kerul Kassel, PhD, participated in a panel presentation at Academy of Management All-Academy Theme Symposium with a focus on the "Informal Economy” (IE).
The presentation was reviewed by author Joseph Sarkis in the Academy's blog Organizations and the Natural Environment on Monday August 6th, 2012 in his article titled “Sustainability and the Informal Economy.” Skaris writes, “Kerul Kassel, sought out the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) performance factors in her talk on the impact of sustainability reporting in on the formal economy. She pointed out the irony of how a formal standard can be used to understand IE. But there is some logic to this application. She essentially made two points, IE needs to be evaluated from a more systemic (rather than binary) view; and sustainability reporting is a research lens that can tell us a lot about IE.” For the full article click here.
