  1. Corporate Responses to Shareholder Activists: Considering the Dialogue Alternative.Kathleen Rehbein, Jeanne M. Logsdon & Harry J. Van Buren - 2013 - Journal of Business Ethics 112 (1):137-154.
    This empirical study examines corporate responses to activist shareholder groups filing social-policy shareholder resolutions. Using resource dependency theory as our conceptual framing, we identify some of the drivers of corporate responses to shareholder activists. This study departs from previous studies by including a fourth possible corporate response, engaging in dialogue. Dialogue, an alternative to shareholder resolutions filed by activists, is a process in which corporations and activist shareholder groups mutually agree to engage in ongoing negotiations to deal with social issues.

    Is Corporate Political Activity a Field?Colby D. Green, Kathleen Rehbein & Douglas A. Schuler - 2019 - Business and Society 58 (7):1376-1405.
    This article focuses upon answering the following question: Does corporate political activity stand as an academic field? Following Hambrick and Chen, we consider three elements of the emergence of an academic field—differentiation, mobilization, and legitimacy. Utilizing a variety of data sources, we find CPA to be well differentiated from other academic fields; to have undertaken a number of activities to mobilize CPA as a field, but short of large-scale unification; and to have earned low to moderate legitimacy within management, but (...)

    Human Rights in the Oil and Gas Industry: When Are Policies and Practices Enough to Prevent Abuse?Michelle Westermann-Behaylo, Annie Snelson-Powell, Kathleen Rehbein & Tricia Olsen - 2022 - Business and Society 61 (6):1512-1557.
    Multinational enterprises are aware of their responsibility to protect human rights now more than ever, but severe human rights violations, including physical integrity abuses, continue unabated. To explore this puzzle, we engage theoretically with the means-ends decoupling literature to examine if and when oil and gas firms’ policies and practices prevent severe human rights abuse. Using an original dataset, we identify two pathways to mitigate means-ends decoupling: while human rights policies alone do not reduce human rights abuses, firms with a (...)

    Corporate Political Activity and Corporate Social Responsibility: A Workshop Report.Kathleen Rehbein, Frank G. de Bakker, Patrick Bernhagen & Andrew Crane - 2011 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 22:300-308.
    This paper contains a short outline of the rationale behind a workshop aimed at seeking connections between corporate social responsibility and corporate political activity. Two ‘provocateurs’ gave their view on these connections. After this kick-off two groups of ~10 persons each engaged in lively discussions on these connections, identifying a range of issues for further research and an interest in keeping this issue on the agenda.

    Building Political Relationships: An Empirical Investigation of Corporate Choices.Kathleen Rehbein & Douglas A. Schuler - 2006 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 17:227-231.
    The objective of this study is to evaluate empirically a firm’s political relationships with elected officials. A general premise is that firms with certaincharacteristics are in a better position for developing political relationships and gaining benefits from these relationships. We draw upon the resource dependency, resource based, and political strategy choice literatures to consider certain factors that lead firms to seek political relationships with elected officials. We test a model drawing upon measures from each of these areas on a sample (...)

    Social Responsibility Ratings and Corporate Responses to Activist Shareholder Resolutions: Is There a Relationship?Jeanne M. Logsdon, Harry van Buren Iii & Kathleen Rehbein - 2008 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 19:307-317.
    The conventional view of the relationship between ratings of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and responses to activist shareholder resolutions is that firms with low CSR ratings are likely to resist activist’s pressures to change corporate policies and behavior. By contrast, firms with high CSR ratings are more likely to support such activist shareholder efforts. In the IABS discussionsession and this paper, we argue that the conventional view of corporate responses to shareholder resolutions is inadequate to explain the motivations, strategies, and (...)

    Examining Strategy Documents on the Internet: How Companies Express Multi-Voicedness and Stakeholder Inclusion.Hanna Lehtimäki, Johanna Kujala & Kathleen Rehbein - 2006 - Proceedings of the International Association for Business and Society 17:261-266.
    Due to continual challenges in their external environment, corporations are facing an increased demand for public participation and stakeholder inclusion. As aresult, companies are seeking ways to improve communication with their stakeholders. The emergence of the Internet has provided new corporate channelsfor offering information to stakeholders. This paper suggests that the information contained in company web pages reflects strategic information about the company. In addition to offering information to the public, web pages signal which issues a company holds as strategically (...)

    The Role of Female Directors in the Boardroom: Examining Their Impact on Competitive Dynamics.Kathleen Rehbein, Margaret Hughes-Morgan & Kalin D. Kolev - 2021 - Business and Society 60 (4):811-843.
    This study contributes simultaneously to research on women board members and competitive dynamics by investigating two unresolved research questions: What is the effect of female directors on the firm’s competitive repertoire? Under what conditions is this effect more pronounced? Leveraging the “Awareness-Motivation-Capability” framework, we predict that having women on the board of directors should impact the complexity, heterogeneity, and volume of the firm’s competitive moves. Relying upon a sample of U.S. pharmaceutical firms for the years 2000 to 2017, we find (...)
