Diana Bilimoria Named to KeyBank Professorship
Diana Bilimoria, PhD, Professor of Organizational Behavior, has been named to the new KeyBank Professorship. Dr. Bilimoria is prominent in the fields of gender diversity and leadership development (she serves as the 2011–2012 Chair of the Gender and Diversity in Organizations Division of the Academy of Management) and has received three multi-year grants from the National Science Foundation to fund research into the advancement of women faculty in science and engineering. In addition to her scholarly activities, Bilimoria works with corporations, nonprofits, and other institutions, as well as with individual executives, to help them capitalize on the wealth of talent available to organizations that encourage and foster a highly-performing, diverse workforce.
Bilimoria’s latest book addresses the inclusion of women faculty in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. Gender Equity in Science and Engineering: Advancing Change in Higher Education, coauthored with Xiangfen Liang, was released in November. The authors assess the equity, diversity, and inclusion outcomes of systematic institutional transformation for women faculty at 19 U.S. universities.
