Associate Research Scholar

The Center for Sustainable Business (CSB) is seeking a skilled, committed individual to provide high-level research and writing support on the role of private equity in sustainability working with the Director of CSB, Professor Tensie Whelan. The call for a move to stakeholder capitalism and sustainable investing comes at a time when private equity, whose goals generally are focused almost exclusively on shareholder return, has become an owner of many companies nationally. PE owns hospitals, newspapers, schools, real estate, manufacturers, consumer brands, and retail, among other sectors. While there is an increasing number of PE firms focused on ESG and long-term value creation, many PE firms look to boost short-term returns through financial engineering (increase debt, get tax subsidies, and reduce headcount,  and other “discretionary” expenses), often destroying jobs, communities and even the company itself after it becomes overleveraged yet under- capitalized. If the U.S. is to rebuild its economy, take care of key stakeholders such as workers and communities, and transform to stakeholder capitalism, we need a roadmap for how PE can play a constructive role
