MSU Featured Authors: Drs. Katherine Taken Smith & Teresa Betts

This week’s Murray State University Libraries’ featured authors are Drs. Katherine Taken Smith and Teresa Betts. Smith and Betts collaborated on the article, “Your company may unwittingly be conducting business with human traffickers: How can you prevent this?,” which appears in volume 58, issue 2, of the Open Access¹ journal, Business Horizons.

According to Smith and Betts, human trafficking is an issue that is slowly being addressed by the business world. Based on their study, only 31% of the the Fortune 500 companies specifically address this major issue. Smith and Betts write,

Corporations can help in the battle to end this inhumane activity, yet not all corporations treat human trafficking as a priority issue and address it within their realm of corporate responsibility.

Based on their study, Smith and Betts outline a four-step process for combating human trafficking that consumers and small-businesses alike can implement. Click here, to read this engaging article by two Murray State University professors in the College of Business.
