Apple Forms Supplier Responsibility Academic Advisory Board
Apple has formed an academic advisory board for its Supplier Responsibility program to assist with the company's goals to provide "safe and ethical working conditions wherever its products are made."
- Study and make recommendations to Apple about current policies and practices
- Conduct or commission new research on labor standards within Apple's supply chain
- Share existing research which may help improve those policies and practices
The eight professors on the board are Richard Locke (Brown University), Chair Mark Cullen (Stanford University), Eli Friedman (Cornell University), Mary Gallagher (University of Michigan), Margaret Levi (University of Washington), Dara O'Rourke (University of California, Berkeley), Charles Sabel (Columbia University) and Annelee Saxenian (University of California, Berkeley).

I have worked with some of these professors. They are good academically and very well versed in their studies, however, not all of the knowledge transfers to the business world fluidly and implementation is more difficult than on paper.

"It is expected that that the new research will result in publicly available working papers, as well as published articles in professional journals."
They are going to need better proofreaders if they want it to be academically acceptable:
