    Our panelists include Guoli Chen, Cindy Devers, Maria Goranova, Raji Kunapuli, Jim Westphal, and Ed Zajac. Christy Shropshire will be our discussant. Raji and Jim will explain how agents symbolically manage participative strategic decision-making. Cindy will discuss how diversity-valuing institutional investors shape female representation in the upper echelons and Guoli will explain how diversity in the board influence firm inventions through a process of diversity cascades. Maria and Ed will present new theory about principle (vs. agent) costs.
