    Call for the 2022 OB Division Mentorship Award

    The OB Division Mentorship Award recognizes a scholar who has excelled at mentoring others in achieving their career objectives through moral, social, and intellectual support. We define each of these criteria in more detail below:

    • Intellectual support: Helps the mentee develop ideas constructively (e.g., by brainstorming, offering a sounding board, suggesting a diverse perspective, providing written feedback) – investing one's (scarce) intellectual capital in the service of mentees.
    • Social support: Helps the mentee develop a professional network that will allow him/her to be successful (e.g., introducing them to others, writing reference letters, suggesting them as co-authors/reviewers/editors) – investing one's (scarce) social capital in the service of mentees.
    • Moral support: Genuinely cares about the well-being and development of the mentee (e.g., encouragement through difficult times, helps maintain self-efficacy, provides perspective or specific career/work strategies) – investing one's (scarce) mental energy in the service of mentees.

    Any member of the OB Division is eligible for this award. This award is not meant to recognize research productivity, advocacy activities in the field, or personal longevity in the field but rather to recognize a scholar who has an impactful effect on other scholars through their outstanding mentorship. To be eligible, the person needs three mentees who are willing to write a letter of nomination on behalf of their mentor. Based on the letters or recommendation received, a young and upcoming artist, being mentored by a more senior artist, will develop a personalized piece of art representing the award winner as a mentor. To nominate an individual for the 2023 Mentorship Award, a nomination packet must include:

    1. A letter of nomination that identifies the candidate, the individual(s) making the nomination, and a short motivation about why this person is being nominated (one page, single spaced);
    2. As supporting evidence, we ask the nominators to each write a supporting letter (one page, single spaced) about how this person has impacted their development, career and lives. These letters will be used as input for the artist crafting the award. We need a minimum of three, and a maximum of 10, letters per person. Nominations are accepted from all OB Division members.
    3. If you nominated a candidate in a prior year/years, you will need to resubmit the nomination materials this year.

    Past award winners:

    • 2022 Christina Gibson
    • 2021 Randall Peterson
    • 2020 Jane Dutton
    • 2019 Katherine Phillips

    Call for the 2022 OB Division Award for Societal Impact

    Scholarly work with societal impact is both scientifically credible and useful to society; it produces societally beneficial knowledge that aims to make the world a better place. This work will often address, but is not limited to, the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals, for example: health and well-being, income and social inequality, and the preservation of the environment. In order to both recognize and incentivize such work in organizational behavior, the OB Division is inviting nominations for the OB Division Award for Societal Impact.


    This award recognizes a body of work, rather than a single conference submission or published article, given that scholarship addressing grand societal problems is often incredibly challenging, unfolding over many years of persistence. It may be published in traditional research outlets; however, it can also be evidenced in monographs, policy papers, books, curriculum, or interventions that may not receive recognition in other forums. Yet, through its application of organizational behavior scholarship, it has the potential to change the world.


    To be eligible for this award, the scholar's work must:

    1. Address problem(s) that relate to timely and important societal challenges in the business, economic, societal or environmental spheres that fall within the domain of organizational behavior,
    2. Provide actionable knowledge or insights for potential policies or practices to improve the well-being of people (employees, customers, suppliers) beyond business and economic success,
    3. Demonstrate strong credibility, and
    4. Be useful for policy or practice within the domain of organizational behavior (i.e., relevance for managers, employees, business, or society).

    An Award Committee comprised of organizational behavior scholars and practitioners will assess the nominations using these criteria and recommend a winner to be announced at the 2023 OB Division Award Ceremony at the Academy of Management Annual Conference.

    • 2021 Michele Gelfand
    • 2020 Laura Morgan Roberts
