Dr. Megan Bea nominated for Kanter Award

Assistant Professor Megan Doherty Bea has been selected as a nominee of the 2021 Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research for her article “His and her earnings following parenthood in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom”.

The award is presented to the author(s) of the best research paper published in a given year.

Dr. Doherty Bea’s work is now recognized as one of 15 nominees from over 2,500 articles published in 2020, from around the world.

A joint project of the Center for Families at Purdue University and the Boston College Center for Work & Family, the international award raises the awareness of high quality work-family research among the scholar, consultant, and practitioner communities. Nominations are not accepted. A very rigorous process involving nomination and review by a committee of over 70 leading scholars determined this year finalists from over 2,500 articles published in 83 leading English-language journals from around the world. As the standards of quality for work-family research continue to rise, the actionable findings from the best studies will become more commonplace in business communities to inform policy and best people practices.
