Weingart receives honor as Academy of Management Fellow

lweingart_resizeredo pngLaurie Weingart, senior associate dean for education and Carnegie Bosch Professor of Organizational Behavior and Theory, has been elected as a Fellow by the Academy of Management (AOM), which selected eight among its nearly 20,000 members to the 2016 Fellows Group for their “significant contributions to the science and practice of management.”

The Fellowship is a lifetime designation. The group annually holds meetings in service of “the exercise of intellectual leadership in the field of management,” according to AOM, an organization that spans 115 countries. The new cohort of Fellows will be honored at an Aug. 7 dinner amid the annual AOM meeting Aug. 5-9 in Anaheim, Calif.

“I am quite honored to be recognized in this way, especially considering the Academy of Management's vast global base and the distinguished list of elected Fellows this year and in years past,” Weingart said.

Weingart joins previous Fellows from the Tepper School of Business: Linda Argote, David M. Kirr and Barbara A. Kirr professor of organizational behavior and theory; the late Paul Goodman, Richard M. Cyert professor of industrial administration and psychology; and Denise M. Rousseau, H.J. Heinz II University professor of organizational behavior and public policy, and dean of the AOM Fellows Group.

“Laurie’s work is very important to the AOM because she’s one of the first people to drill down to discrete communication processes that negotiations entail,” Rousseau said. “She’s a great addition to the Fellows.”
