Faculty Spotlight: Kathy Lund Dean

Posted on December 2nd, 2021 by

Kathy Lund Dean (Economics and Management) and Cat LaCasse ’22 (Accounting) had their paper, “Not even trying to be innovative? Network ties and homophily in management research leadership” accepted for presentation at the Western Academy of Management meeting in March 2022. The paper uses social network analysis to examine ties among Academy of Management leaders and journal editors and measures homophily along gender and racial background lines. Results indicated relatively strong homophily by race, presenting some support for charges of a lack of social innovation in management research.
