U.S. Bank Prize Essay Topics
Shared Value: Everybody Wins
Explore how the concept of creating shared value (CSV) – creating economic value while also creating benefit for society – increases competitive advantage by capitalizing on the interdependence between business and community. Address the social and economic implications of women’s increasing levels of income worldwide. Then, using the principles of CSV, write a persuasive, research-based proposal that urges a corporation to adopt a social impact investment strategy to solve an issue that affects women. Explain how it benefits the company and the global community.
Women’s Influence and Innovation
Study after study indicates that companies with focused diversity and inclusion efforts are more innovative. Examine what conditions are necessary to foster a corporate culture of creativity. Cite examples of companies that saw greater levels of innovation with the inclusion of women in leadership positions. Finally, design a research-based proposal with implementable practices for companies to increase thought diversity and, in turn, innovation.
Corporate Ethics: Women’s Impact
Over the last few decades, women’s participation in the workforce has grown exponentially. Research and analyze the impact increased numbers of women have on corporate culture – particularly in terms of accountability and transparency. Then, citing research, support or debunk the argument that women make more ethical leaders than men.
Women on Boards: Shared Value vs. Quotas
The business philosophy of creating shared value (CSV) focuses on the connection between societal progress and economic growth. Examine the effect that women on corporate boards have on company performance in terms of bottom lines and philanthropic spending. Then, analyze the debate over the European Union’s decision to mandate that 40 percent of a company’s corporate board members must be women by the year 2020. Could incentivizing a CSV approach be an alternative to the “command and control” nature of quotas? Explain why or why not. Write an action plan for companies to increase the number of women serving on their boards, either by applying CSV principles or otherwise.
Plugging Women Into STEM
Despite the rapid expansion of employment within industries related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), the gender gap in these fields remains. Provide a research-based analysis of the factors that keep women and girls disengaged from pursuing STEM-related careers. Explain why women’s participation in these industries is essential to the United States economy and propose one or more programs to bolster women’s employment in STEM fields.
Parenting + Career = Struggle
As more women and men choose to combine parenting and career, examine companies that are successful in their efforts to support and retain working parents, especially mothers. Discuss whether investing in and retaining women is important to a company’s overarching success and, ultimately, bottom line. Based on your research, explore how corporate culture and American businesses can adapt in order to address the competing demands of parenting and career, enabling working parents to continue to advance within a company. Propose public and/or private strategies and policies to help accelerate this cultural shift.
Eligible applicants must be:

- A U.S. citizen or legal resident of the United States.
- In pursuit of their first bachelor’s degree. (Students who have already obtained a bachelor’s degree are not eligible.)
