Recently, I was ranked #21 on “a quarterly list of the most influential faculty thinkers on issues of responsible business in social media.” Tied with me in 21st place were Andrew Crane (University of Bath) and Andrew Hoffman (University of Michigan). We were ranked just below Wayne Visser (University of Antwerp) and Rolf Wüstenhagen (University of St. Gallen) who were tied for 19th place and just above Joe Arvai (University of Michigan), Alex Edmans (London Business School), and Brayden King (Northwestern University) who were tied for 24th place. Dubbed the #thinklist, the ranking was compiled by the Centre for Business, Organisations & Society at the University of Bath.
On March 9, 2018, I was honored to receive the 2018 Ascendant Scholar Award from the Western Academy of Management, together with Allison Gabriel from the University of Arizona. First awarded in 1982, the list of past winners is now long and distinguished — and filled with many of my heroes. I am especially proud to join several current Alberta colleagues who have won the award in the past: Dev Jennings (1996), Mike Lounsbury (2006), and Marvin Washington (2006). Other prior winners from Alberta include Kay Devine (1995) and Roy Suddaby (2007).

I am pleased to announce that I was selected as a recipient of the 2018 Ascendant Scholar Award. The award will be presented at the 2018 Western Academy of Management Conference, to be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, from March 7-10, 2018.
According to the Western Academy of Management, “the Ascendant Scholar award recognizes individuals who are considered ‘ascendant,’ based on their academic record of research, teaching, service, and a professional trajectory or potential that looks very promising for the future. They typically have a maximum of six to seven years of experience, preferably from or with strong connections to business schools in the Western Academy of Management region.”
In conjunction with this award, I have been asked to discuss my research and my personal journey leading to this point in a session scheduled for Friday, March 9.
