Joanne Martin

Fred H. Merrill Professor of Organizational Behavior, Emerita

Joanne Martin is best known for her research on organizational culture. More recently her work has shifted to the study of gender in organizations. Recent projects focus on large-scale, cross-institutional efforts to improve gender equity, here and abroad; the process by which gender is socially constructed in organizational settings; and the subtle and often unintended ways organizational cultures place women at a disadvantage.

Joanne Martin is the Fred H. Merrill Professor of Organizational Behavior, Emerita, and, by courtesy, Sociology at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University. Martin received a PhD in Social Psychology from Harvard in 1977 and honorary doctorates from Copenhagen Business School in 2001 and the Vrej University in Amsterdam in 2005.

In addition to her work at the Graduate School of Business at Stanford, Professor Martin has been elected to serve on: the Board of Governors of the Academy of Management; the Stanford University Advisory Board (reviewing all tenure appointments) at Stanford; the Board of Directors of C.P.P., Inc.; and the International Advisory Board of the International Center for Research in Organizational Discourse, Strategy, and Change, for the Universities of Melbourne, Sydney, London, and McGill.

Martin has received numerous awards, including the Gordon Allport Intergroup Relations Award from the American Psychological Association in 1988 (for a paper with Thomas Pettigrew on barriers to inclusion for African-Americans); the Distinguished Educator Award from the Academy of Management in 2000, the Centennial Medal from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University, for research-based contributions to society, in 2002; and the Distinguished Scholar Career Achievement Award from the National Academy of Management, Organization, and Management Theory Division in 2005. /p>
