BIO

Jenny Mish investigates the social and cultural implications of sustainability for marketing strategy. She aims to build a theory of the development of sustainable markets, assuming that markets of the future must be sustainable. Current and recent work examines consumer-consumer influences, triple-bottom line firms, and sustainability-related food product standards. Key findings include stakeholder responsiveness as a source of customer value, and three marketing strategies that are being used to address consumer trust issues related to sustainability.

Mish teaches Principles of Marketing and a new undergraduate course on Marketing and Sustainability. Inspired by her parents' and grandparents' work with cooperatives, she returned to academia to pursue an ideal of an economic system that works for all. Previously, she developed youth programs for non-profit organizations, wrote grants, and operated a resume and consulting business.
