Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award
For Excellence in Work-Family Research
The Rosabeth Moss Kanter Award for Excellence in Work-Family Research is a partnership between the Boston College Center for Work & Family and the Center for Families at Purdue University.
The Boston College Center for Work & Family
The Boston College Center for Work & Family is committed to enhancing the quality of life of today's workforce by providing leadership for the integration of work and life. Find out more about the Boston College Center for Work & Family.
Founded in 1994, the Center for Families at Purdue University is a concrete reminder that families, in all their diverse forms, are the foundation of society.
The center used to be no more than a lofty dream shared by a few creative and dedicated individuals. Today, the center's work touches the lives of thousands of families in new ways. State and local policymakers come together to learn about new research on families and children. Employers learn about ways to help their employees do a good job, both at home and at work.
The Center for Families provides a way for faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends of the College of Consumer and Family Sciences to bring about change focused on families, and issue about which they are deeply passionate, and a change that is even more lasting than bricks and mortar. These caring partners have both extended and focused the efforts of the school and created possibilities for collaborations seldom imagined in the past.
