Abstract: Over the past several years, many political scientists have addressed the subject of gay rights in the United States. Some have investigated the adoption of anti-discrimination laws at the local level while others have focused on the state level. However, very few have sought to examine the impact of corporate policies on public policymaking. This study seeks to bridge those gaps by joining the literature on gay rights, interest groups, and policy diffusion with Richard Florida’s sociological findings concerning the American workplace. Specifically, I seek to address the increasing—yet rarely studied—role that major corporations are playing in shaping gay rights policy. The results strongly indicate that while traditional partisan/ideological differences are still paramount, that large corporations (especially Fortune 500 companies) play a significant role in pressuring state governments to enact more tolerant public policies.

Abstract: This study examines hyperlinks in the environmental section of the corporate web sites of Fortune global 500. Results show that Asian companies are less likely to maintain partnership with environmental organizations than North-American and Western European companies. While companies are more likely to maintain partnership with non-profit environmental organizations than government or intergovernmental agencies, a hyperlink network analysis reveals that government or intergovernmental agencies play a central role in social partnership.

Abstract: This study investigated 2008 Fortune global 500 corporate websites with regard to how the corporate websites present environmental information and encourage dialogue with the public through their websites. This study grouped 2008 Fortune global 500 companies by region – North America, Europe, and Asia – and then analyzed what environmental issues they prioritize and how they share global environmental issues (e.g., climate changes) and whether they are any regional environmental issues that each region prioritizing (e.g., air pollution, water conservation, and deforestation). The results showed that European corporate websites are paid more attention to environmental issues, followed by North America and Asia respectively. With regard to environmental issues, most corporate websites place more importance on climate changes and resource/waste management but less importance on ecosystem management, and environmental governance. With regard to dialogic features, corporate websites are not fully employing the dialogic capacity. The results implicate that although corporate websites play a pivot role as an environmental information provider, they still are not fully employing dialogic features of the Internet.

Abstract: This paper analyzes the resources the business community brings to bear on the political process. Past research has focused overwhelmingly on campaign contributions as the main source of corporate power. In this paper I speculate that corporations also influence legislators with another little-recognized resource: social, environmental, and philanthropic contributions made in the name of corporate social responsibility. I offer a preliminary theory about why lawmakers may reward good corporate citizens with access and benefits. To test this theory, I examine the determinants of one measure of access: congressional hearing appearances by Fortune 500 companies in the 105th and 106th sessions. Among other things, I control for firm PAC contributions, soft money contributions, and lobbying expenditures. The key empirical finding is that a reputation for corporate social responsibility is a significant predictor of firm hearing appearances. As an important aside, lobbying dollars and soft money contributions are also associated with testimony, though PAC contributions are not. Theoretically, this research suggests that analyses of business political power and interest group dynamics should take into account corporate responsibility efforts. This source of influence is unique to the business community and unmatched by any other interest group.

Abstract: This paper examines how social activism and inter-organizational imitation interact to explain the adoption of a novel—and contentious—practice. It analyzes the diffusion of domestic partner benefits among Fortune 500 companies. We employ information on the companies that firms benchmark against in evaluating their health care benefits to generate a near-complete “attention network.” Combined with information on the presence of activist employee groups inside companies and the dates of companies’ adoption of domestic partner benefits, these data are analyzed through a heterogeneous diffusion model (Davis and Greve 1997) to unpack how social activism and diffusion interact to explain the rate and pattern of diffusion.
