Conceptual Review

Corporate Sociopolitical Activism (CSA)

Defining the Scope and Corporate Sociopolitical Activism (CSA) represents a dynamic and multifaceted phenomenon within the contemporary business landscape. As Bhagwat et al. (2020) suggest, the scope and dynamics of CSA extend far beyond traditional corporate activities, encompassing a spectrum of sociopolitical issues. The term itself signifies a departure from the conventional understanding of corporate social responsibility (CSR), indicating a more proactive and intentional engagement with societal and political matters. The dimensions of CSA are wide-ranging, encapsulating environmental sustainability, human rights, diversity and inclusion, and political engagement (Avery & Pauwels, 2019; Bhagwat et al., 2020). This breadth highlights the comprehensive nature of CSA, emphasizing that it goes beyond philanthropy to actively influence and contribute to societal changes.

CSA operates within a dynamic and evolving landscape, reflecting the intricate interplay between corporations and the broader sociopolitical milieu. The scope of CSA is not static; rather, it adapts to the changing contours of societal expectations and global challenges (Carroll, 2019). For instance, the increasing emphasis on environmental sustainability has prompted companies to incorporate eco-friendly practices into their business models, demonstrating a proactive stance on a critical sociopolitical issue (Lai et al., 2020). Moreover, the dynamics of CSA are influenced by the global socio-political climate, with organizations responding to and sometimes influencing public discourse and policy changes (Hur et al., 2021). This dynamic nature underscores the importance of continuous exploration and understanding of the various dimensions that constitute CSA.

The manifestations of CSA are diverse and often context-specific, reflecting the unique challenges and opportunities faced by organizations in different sectors and regions. As seen in the case of Nike and Colin Kaepernick, brands may engage in CSA through endorsements and campaigns that align with specific sociopolitical causes (Avery & Pauwels, 2019). This form of activism not only communicates a company’s stance on particular issues but also shapes its brand identity and consumer perceptions (Chaffee, 2017). On the other hand, organizations like IKEA may engage in sociopolitical issues by actively communicating with authoritative bodies, as evidenced by their letter to Treccani regarding linguistic inclusivity (Inside Marketing, n.d.). These diverse manifestations illustrate the adaptability of CSA strategies to the unique circumstances and objectives of each organization.

The multidimensionality of CSA also encompasses the internal dynamics within organizations. Bhattacharya and Elsbach (2002) delve into the concept of organizational identification and disidentification, highlighting how employees’ alignment with or detachment from their organization’s sociopolitical initiatives can impact the success of such endeavours. An exploration of internal dynamics is crucial for understanding the effectiveness of CSA strategies, as it elucidates the role of organizational culture and leadership in driving sociopolitical engagement (Hay & Gray, 2020). This internal dimension adds a layer of complexity to the scope of CSA, demonstrating that successful implementation goes beyond external communications to encompass internal cohesion and support.

Furthermore, delving into the scope and dynamics of CSA involves examining the motivations behind corporations’ engagement with sociopolitical issues. Carroll (2008) discusses the evolution of corporate social responsibility and suggests that corporations have moved from a focus on economic responsibilities to philanthropy and, subsequently, to a broader engagement with sociopolitical issues. Understanding these motivations is essential for comprehending the depth and authenticity of CSA initiatives. For instance, the study by Fatma, Khan, and Rahman (2021) explores how building company reputation and brand equity through CSR serves as a motivation for engaging in sociopolitical issues, illustrating the intricate linkages between reputational concerns and CSA.

CSA Implementation Strategies

Corporate Sociopolitical Activism (CSA) implementation strategies represent the tactical and deliberate approaches that organizations employ to actively engage with sociopolitical issues. These strategies are not one-size-fits-all; rather, they are tailored to the unique characteristics of each organization, the nature of the issues at hand, and the broader sociopolitical context. As organizations navigate the complex terrain of sociopolitical activism, it becomes imperative to unravel and understand the specific strategies they adopt.

One key strategy in CSA implementation is the alignment of corporate values with sociopolitical causes. Bhagwat et al. (2020) argue that organizations strategically align themselves with causes that resonate with their core values and business objectives. This alignment serves as a foundation for authentic and credible sociopolitical engagement, fostering a connection between the organization and its stakeholders. Such alignment is evident in the case of Nike and Colin Kaepernick, where Nike’s engagement with the sociopolitical issue of racial justice was in harmony with the brand’s history of endorsing athletes with strong social stands (Avery & Pauwels, 2019).

Moreover, the integration of sociopolitical considerations into corporate policies and practices is a crucial strategy. Organizations often go beyond symbolic gestures and incorporate sociopolitical values into their operations. This includes adopting environmentally sustainable practices, ensuring diversity and inclusion in the workplace, and supporting human rights (Bhagwat et al., 2020; Chaffee, 2017). The implementation of such policies reflects a commitment to sociopolitical issues that go beyond public relations, fostering a systemic and sustained impact on the organization’s practices and its stakeholders.

Another noteworthy strategy is strategic communication and advocacy. Organizations actively use communication channels to articulate their sociopolitical stances, convey their commitment to specific causes, and advocate for societal changes (Hur et al., 2021; Inside Marketing, n.d.). This involves not only external communication to consumers but also internal communication to employees. The way an organization communicates its sociopolitical engagement can influence perceptions, brand image, and stakeholder relationships (del Mar García-De los Salmones & Perez, 2017). For instance, the study by Dodd and Supa (2022) emphasizes the conceptualization and measurement of “Corporate Social Advocacy” communication and its impact on corporate financial performance.

Furthermore, proactive engagement with stakeholders is a pivotal strategy in CSA implementation. Organizations recognize the importance of involving diverse stakeholders, including customers, employees, and investors, in shaping their sociopolitical initiatives (Carroll, 2019; Lai et al., 2020). This participatory approach not only enhances the effectiveness of the initiatives but also ensures that they are aligned with the expectations and values of key stakeholders. The study by Nalick et al. (2022) delves into the reflection of preferences in corporate sociopolitical involvement, shedding light on the intricate dynamics between organizations and stakeholders.

Organizations often leverage partnerships and collaborations as part of their CSA implementation strategies. Collaborations with NGOs, governmental bodies, or other corporations allow organizations to pool resources, share expertise, and amplify the impact of their sociopolitical initiatives (Avery & Pauwels, 2019; Porter & Kramer, 2022). Such partnerships can enhance the credibility and reach of an organization’s sociopolitical endeavours, enabling them to address complex challenges more effectively.

Moreover, the use of technology and social media platforms has emerged as a powerful strategy for organizations engaged in sociopolitical activism. Platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram provide a direct and instantaneous channel for organizations to communicate their stances, engage with stakeholders, and mobilize support for specific causes (Hur et al., 2021; New York Times, 2021). The case of Victoria’s Secret and their engagement with the Collective, as reported by the New York Times (2021), exemplifies how social media becomes a battleground for sociopolitical conversations and corporate responses.





The methodology employed in this study is crucial in ensuring the systematic collection and analysis of data to address the research objectives effectively. This chapter outlines the research philosophy, design, population, sampling technique, sources and methods of data collection, data analysis, and ethical considerations. Each section is meticulously chosen to align with the objectives of the study and aims to provide a robust framework for investigating Corporate Sociopolitical Activism (CSA).

Research Philosophy

The research philosophy chosen for this study is pragmatism, a philosophical approach that integrates both positivist and interpretive elements, allowing for a nuanced and comprehensive understanding of Corporate Sociopolitical Activism (CSA). Pragmatism is justified in this context due to its flexibility and practical orientation. As Saunders, Lewis, and Thornhill (2019) highlight, pragmatism emphasizes the practical consequences of research, aligning well with the study’s focus on understanding the real-world impact and effectiveness of CSA strategies within organizational contexts.

Pragmatism, as a research philosophy, provides a flexible framework that accommodates diverse perspectives and methodologies. It allows researchers to blend quantitative and qualitative approaches, offering a holistic view of the complexities associated with CSA. The inherent openness of pragmatism aligns with the multifaceted nature of sociopolitical issues addressed by organizations. This approach is in line with the call for a more integrated and adaptable research paradigm that reflects the dynamic and evolving nature of CSR and sociopolitical activism (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill, 2019).

The practical orientation of pragmatism is particularly relevant for a study investigating the effectiveness of CSA strategies. Pragmatism emphasizes the importance of considering the practical consequences and implications of research findings. In the context of CSA, where organizations are actively engaging with sociopolitical issues, understanding the practical outcomes of their strategies is essential. This aligns with the study’s objective to not only explore the theoretical aspects of CSA but also to provide insights that can inform and guide real-world organizational practices.

Furthermore, pragmatism’s emphasis on the practical consequences of research aligns with the nature of sociopolitical activism, which is often driven by a desire for tangible impact and positive change. By adopting a pragmatic approach, the study aims to bridge the gap between theory and practice, offering insights that organizations can apply to enhance the effectiveness of their sociopolitical initiatives. Pragmatism allows for the exploration of the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ of CSA in a way that goes beyond theoretical abstractions, emphasizing the importance of actionable insights (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill, 2019).

Research Design

For this study, a quantitative survey research design has been deliberately chosen due to its appropriateness in exploring the intricate relationships and patterns associated with Corporate Sociopolitical Activism (CSA). The quantitative survey design facilitates the collection of numerical data, enabling statistical analysis to draw meaningful and statistically significant conclusions about the impact of sociopolitical activism on various organizational outcomes. This choice is in line with the methodological considerations highlighted by Anderson, Fontinha, and Robson (2020).

The quantitative survey design provides a systematic and structured approach to data collection, ensuring consistency in gathering information from a large sample of respondents. This structure is vital for maintaining uniformity in data collection processes and instruments, enhancing the reliability and validity of the study. As emphasized by Anderson, Fontinha, and Robson (2020), the structured nature of the survey design allows for a standardized approach across respondents, enabling researchers to draw reliable comparisons and make generalizable inferences.

Additionally, the quantitative survey design aligns with the nature of the research questions posed in this study. By employing numerical measures, the research can quantitatively assess the relationships between different variables related to CSA, such as its impact on organizational reputation, stakeholder expectations, and overall effectiveness. This aligns with the need for empirical evidence to inform decision-making and policy formulation within organizations (Bell, Bryman, & Harley, 2019).

Furthermore, the survey design is well-suited for capturing a broad and diverse range of perspectives from the targeted population. With a focus on understanding the multifaceted dimensions of CSA, a quantitative survey allows for the collection of a substantial amount of data, contributing to a comprehensive analysis. This approach resonates to achieve a holistic understanding of the effectiveness of CSA strategies.

 Population of the Study

The target population for this study encompasses professionals and stakeholders actively engaged in organizational decision-making processes, particularly those possessing valuable insights into the implementation of Corporate Sociopolitical Activism (CSA) strategies. The rationale behind selecting a target population of 171 respondents is rooted in methodological considerations and aligns with recommendations from Saunders, Lewis, and Thornhill (2019).

The justification for the chosen target population size revolves around the imperative to ensure adequate representation and diversity within the sample. A population of 171 respondents is considered sufficient to capture a diverse range of perspectives and experiences related to CSA practices within organizations. As noted by Saunders, Lewis, and Thornhill (2019), a well-sized sample enhances the study’s external validity, allowing for more generalizable conclusions that can be applied to a broader context.

Moreover, the chosen target population size aligns with the pragmatic approach of this research, aiming for a balance between the depth of insights gained from respondents and the feasibility of data collection within the designated timeframe. According to the principles of pragmatism, a research philosophy emphasizing practical consequences (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill, 2019), the chosen sample size strikes an optimal balance between the need for comprehensive insights and the logistical constraints inherent in survey-based research.

By selecting a target population of 171 individuals with direct involvement in organizational decision-making and CSA implementation, this study ensures that the findings are robust and reflective of the diverse landscape of corporate sociopolitical activism. The methodological considerations, as guided by Saunders, Lewis, and Thornhill (2019), underscore the importance of a well-sized sample in achieving the study’s objectives and contribute to the overall rigour and reliability of the research outcomes.

Limitations of the Study

Despite the valuable insights gained from this study, several limitations should be acknowledged. Firstly, the research focused on a specific industry sector, and the generalizability of the findings to other sectors may be limited. Different industries may exhibit distinct sociopolitical dynamics, and future research should aim to explore these variations to enhance the external validity of the study.

Secondly, the study relied on self-reported data through questionnaires, which may introduce social desirability bias. Respondents may have provided answers that align with perceived societal expectations rather than their true opinions or behaviours. While efforts were made to ensure the confidentiality of responses, the inherent limitation of self-reported data should be considered when interpreting the results.

Additionally, the cross-sectional nature of the study design limits the ability to establish causation. The findings provide associations between variables, but causal relationships cannot be firmly established. Longitudinal studies tracking organizations’ sociopolitical initiatives over time could provide more robust insights into the causal mechanisms at play.

Furthermore, the research faced constraints related to the sample size and geographic scope. The study focused on a specific region, and the findings may not fully capture the diversity of sociopolitical contexts globally. Future research could expand the sample size and consider a more diverse range of organizations to enhance the study’s external validity.

Despite these limitations, the study contributes valuable insights to the field of Corporate Sociopolitical Activism. Recognizing these limitations is essential for refining future research endeavours and ensuring a more nuanced understanding of the complexities associated with sociopolitical engagement in diverse organizational settings.

Comparative studies between industries may uncover sector-specific patterns and shed light on how organizations tailor their sociopolitical engagement based on their operational context.

Secondly, investigating the role of organizational size and structure in shaping sociopolitical initiatives could be a fruitful area of exploration. Large corporations may navigate sociopolitical issues differently than smaller entities and the organizational structure might influence the speed and effectiveness of implementing sociopolitical strategies. Understanding these dynamics can offer practical insights for organizations of varying sizes.

Moreover, a deeper examination of the interplay between cultural and regional contexts and sociopolitical engagement is warranted. The study’s focus was primarily regional, and expanding the research to a global context could uncover cultural factors influencing organizations’ approaches to sociopolitical issues. Comparative studies across regions and cultures would contribute to a more nuanced understanding of the complexities involved in navigating sociopolitical landscapes.

These suggestions for further research aim to enhance the breadth and depth of knowledge in the field of Corporate Sociopolitical Activism. Exploring these avenues would not only contribute to academic scholarship but also provide practical insights for organizations seeking to navigate the sociopolitical landscape in an increasingly interconnected and dynamic world.
