Sucheta Nadkarni Award for Outstanding Publication on Women Executive Leadership

The Behavioral Strategy and Strategic Leadership & Governance Interest Groups are pleased to invite nominations for the inaugural Sucheta Nadkarni Award for Outstanding Publication on Women Executive Leadership. We are grateful to Cambridge Judge Business School at the University of Cambridge for sponsoring this award in memory of our friend and colleague Sucheta Nadkarni (1967-2019). The award recognizes a refereed journal publication with potential to significantly impact our understanding of women executive leadership.

Professor Nadkarni’s scholarship in the area of strategic leadership, competitive dynamics, and gender diversity, has been influential across academia and practice. She was Gender Equality Champion at the University of Cambridge (2016-2019) and served as the Director of the Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School, where she designed a popular Executive Education program to develop the next generation of women leaders.
