We produce distinctive, collaborative, and intersectional research in the form of articles, books, edited volumes, symposia, conferences, psychometric scales, and metric indicators. Our network is global, as are our concerns. Our research takes seriously a systems and design-thinking approach with the whole human in mind.

The Princeton Faith & Work Initiative generates intellectual frameworks and practical resources for students and leaders. At any given time, there is a mix of short-term and long-term research projects being undertaken by the Initiative.

The researchers at FWI are currently exploring several different avenues of research into values-based leadership, ethics, and professional responsibility, as well as questions around religion and workplace.  

Most recently, in "The Ethics of Organizational Change," David W. Miller and Michael J. Thate continue their leading role in creating models for organizational strategy that are both realistic and transformative, especially in light of the cultural and societal factors impacting us all. Here, they propose innovative methodology that accomplishes and measures such change, coordinating the interests of actors both within and outside of an organization. You can hear an interview with David about the study, on a podcast episode of the series "Spectator Briefings."

Their work also appears in the newly released The Spirit of Conscious Capitalism: Contributions of World Religions and Spiritualities, part of the book series "Ethical Economy: Studies in Economic Ethics and Philosophy" (Switzerland: Springer). Michael's article is "Can Capitalism Be Conscious of Anything But Itself? Gnosticism, Attention, and Persuasive Technologies," and David and Michael co-authored "The Responsible Leader."

Other current major research projects include "Sky Pilots: A study of Workplace Chaplaincy" and the second edition of God at Work: The History and Promise of the Faith at Work Movement.
