Winners of the 1st Indigenous Voices Case Writing Competition announced

The CASE Journal

We are very pleased to announce the winners of the Indigenous Voices Case Writing Competition.

This competition aimed to provide a home for Indigenous scholars within the Emerald teaching case ecosystem. Due to the historical underrepresentation of Indigenous voices in case collections, Emerald recognized a pressing need to acknowledge and support the contributions of Indigenous authors and business leaders to the literature. The competition was open to all communities around the world, and was judged by a panel of case experts and Indigenous scholars.

The winning cases are:

1st place – Cannabis in Wisikk: A Tempting Venture
Ryan Stack, Acadia University, Canada
Storm Gould, Queen’s University, Canada
Bertrand Malsch, Queen’s University, Canada

2nd place – To Digitalize or Not Digitialize: Scaling Up Dilemma at Karan Handicrafts
Diti Pundrik Vyas, Anant National University, India
Subhalaxmi Mohapatra, Anant National University, India
Karan Marvada, Karan Handicrafts, India

3rd place – Millet Magic Foundation: A social initiative for alleviating Indigenous tribes of Mayurbhanj
Nidhi Mathur, Jaipuria Institute of Management Indirapuram Ghaziabad, India
DeviArchana Mohanty, Jaipuria Institute of Management Indirapuram Ghaziabad, India
Saurabh Gupta, OP Jindal University, India

We would like to thank all the submitting authors, and the competition judges for their contribution to this competition. We look forward to our continued collaborations with these authors as we work to move these cases towards publication. All entries to the competition, regardless of whether they placed among the top three cases, will be considered for publication in The CASE Journal pending the usual review processes.

It is our pleasure to partner with all involved in the competition to highlight the stories and research of Indigenous business leaders and scholars.

Congratulations to all the winning authors!
