23 June 2014—A research by Ariane Ollier-Malaterre and Monique Valcour, Center's research associates, was selected as the recipient of the 2014 Rosabeth Moss Kanter for Excellence in Work-Family Research.
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 published during the year. No applications or nominations are accepted. The finalist articles were selected through a rigorous process involving nomination and review by a committee of over 45 leading scholars. This year, five finalists were selected from over 2500 articles published in 2013 in 77 leading English-language journals from around the world.
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.
