Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) April 30, 2009
Dr. Carlton Lamar Robinson's paper entitled "Creating a Basis For Understanding Entrepreneurial Variation Using Social and Cultural Attributions: A Phenomenological Perspective", (presented in Dallas,TX on April 25, 2009) has received a Research Award from the International Academy of Business and Public Administration Disciplines.
The history of black chambers dates back to the days of Booker T. Washington and the National Negro Business League. Dr. Robinson is well aware of the history of contribution that these entities made. Upon becoming a part of the leadership team at the First Coast African American Chamber of Commerce in Jacksonville, FL (2007) and the Florida Black Chamber, he had a mission to make a scholarly contribution on behlaf of the African American business community. He credits his relationship with a wide range of organizations, local and state, who support black entrepreneurs.
Most importantly, he is especially grateful to the small businesses/entrepreneurs who trusted him enough to both share their experience and knowledge regarding economic development. Dr. Robinson has stated many times that ethnic chambers are gold mines for data and information that can lead to positive change in the overall community.
In the future, Dr. Robinson hopes to share his entrepreneurial covariation model and assist multiple communities in better developing entrepreneurs by upgrading their curriculums. According to Dr. Robinson, organizations will come to both value and realize some of the social and cultural variations between business owners/entrepreneurs. He intends to use http://www.thevirtualchamberofcommerce.com as the primary support vehicle.
