The Boston College Center for Work & Family is proud to partner with Purdue University to recognize the best work-family research each year and honor those scholars with 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 award process involves a minimum of 70 scholarly reviewers from all over the world who decide on the Kanter winners from over 2500 articles published in over 75 scholarly journals. No applications or nominations are accepted.
The Kanter 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.
