Distinguished Career Award

The Distinguished Career Award recognizes and celebrates a career of outstanding contributions to the area(s) of organizations, occupations, and/or work. Nominations are judged on the depth and breadth of scholarly impact over an extended time and across multiple projects.

Nominators also have the option of sending a portfolio of up to 10 of the nominee’s electronic publications.
