About the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award
Named in honor of Rosabeth Moss Kanter, who has been identified as the most influential contributor to modern literature on work and family, the Kanter Award is given for the best research paper(s) published during the year. The rigorous nomination process for award selection involves 35 scholarly reviewers from 11 countries who decide on the Kanter winners from among over 2500 articles published in more than 70 scholarly journals. This award raises awareness of excellent work-family research, fosters debate about standards of excellence, identifies the “best of the best” studies on which to base future research and outlines specific implications of the research for work-life and human resource professionals.
The Center for Families at Purdue University and the Boston College Center for Work & Family developed the Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award to raise the awareness of high quality work-family research among the scholar, consultant and practitioner communities. Through the generous sponsorship of the corporate partners of the Boston College Center for Work & Family, the standards of quality for work-family research will continue to rise, and actionable findings from the best studies will become more commonplace in business communities to inform policy and best people practices
