At the commencement ceremony for the graduating class of 2010, Lori Kendall was selected as the speaker for the adult degree completion program. She advised the gathering of students, “Don’t ever hide your light under a bushel.” Lori has been keeping her light shining bright as a second year doctoral student and Fellow at the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value, Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University.
Her first research study, entitled “When Businesses Falter: How Relational Climates Foster or Hinder Recovery,” was accepted for presentation at the Academy of Management’s 74th Annual Meeting and Conference which was held the first week in August in Philadelphia. Peer reviewers nominated her paper to receive a “best paper” award, an honor resulting in being published in the “Best Paper Proceedings” for the conference.
The Academy of Management, a professional association for scholars of management and organizations, was established in 1936. It publishes academic journals, organizes conferences, and provides other forums for managers and management professors to communicate research and ideas. Its annual conference attracts over 10,000 students, academics, scholars, and professionals in the scholarly management and organization sectors.
