ISM PhD alumnus and faculty member Kimberly Reeve and DBA alumnus Tiffany Oloke presented their papers and moderated several sessions during the ISTR Global Virtual Conference 2021.

The global virtual conference took place between July 12 and July 15 and considered the roles of NGOs, third sector, and civil society organizations, broadly defined, in relation to civil society, state, and markets in democratic contexts. 

Kimberly Reeve presented her paper "Anatomy of Nonprofit Mergers: Synergies or Unanticipated Consequences?" that was co-authored with ISM faculty member Matthew Wong.

Tiffany Oloke presented her paper “The Role of the Third Sector in Eliminating the Barriers Faced by Nigerian Female Immigrant Entrepreneurs in the Service Industry" which shared some of the findings from her dissertation.

Founded in 1992, the International Society for Third-Sector Research (ISTR) is a major international association promoting research and education in the fields of civil society, philanthropy, and the nonprofit sector.
