Management Award Recognizes Enduring Faculty Collaboration
July 19, 2017
Isenberg professors of organizational studies and management Linda Smircichand MartaCalás are this year’s recipients of the prestigious Pasmore-Woodman Award. Presented annually by the Academy of Management’s Organization Development and Change (ODC) division, the award honors two or more colleagues with a sustained, significant working relationship yielding original, innovative research that informs ODC research and practice. The award recognizes outstanding work in content and/or medium. That includes traditional journal articles as well as monographs, edited collections, book series, ebooks, open access publications, and films.
For over three decades, Professors Calás and Smircich have collaborated on research and critiques that shed light on theory and practice involving gender and organization; inequality and organizations, organizational change, and cultural and feminist perspectives on globalization, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. Both scholars were members of founding and subsequent editorial teams at ORGANIZATION: The Critical Journal of Organization, Theory & Society. Both were also guest editors in 2010 for a special issue of the journal Gender, Work & Organization, which focused on gender and ethnicity. In 2006 they received the Sage Award for Distinguished Body of Scholarship from the Gender, Diversity & Organizations Division of the Academy of Management.
“We take this award as a degree of endorsement for the way Isenberg—over the years—has supported collaborative and ‘out of the box’ (dare we say “risky”) scholarship,” Calás and Smircich remark. “We are hopeful that that will continue!”
