The Women and Public Policy Program is thrilled to offer our sincerest congratulations to our co-director Hannah Riley Bowles, who has won the 2020 Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research.
The Center for Families at Purdue University and the Boston College Center for Work & Family recognizes the best work-family research each year and honors those scholars with the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award. Professor Riley Bowles received the award for her article Reconceptualizing what and how women negotiate for career advancement, published in the Academy of Management Journal and co-authored by Bobbi Thomason and Julia B. Bear.
Professor Riley Bowles was recognized at the Work & Family Researchers Network Conference, which took place virtually on Friday, February 5, 2021. She will share her research in a keynote presentation at the Boston College Workforce Roundtable Meeting on May 20, 2021.
The Kanter Award is named in honor of Rosabeth Moss Kanter, who has been identified as the most influential contributor to modern literature on work and family. This year, four finalists were selected from over 2500 articles published in 2019 in over 80 leading English-language journals worldwide. The finalists were then reviewed by a team of members from the BC Workforce Roundtable, who provided feedback from their viewpoint as corporate practitioners.
