Kira Schabram is an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Michael G. Foster School of Business, University of Washington. Her research expertise is in understanding and mitigating the challenges faced by employees who want to make a positive impact in the world. She explores conditions that thwart such virtuous efforts, as well as how the impulse to make a positive difference can, counter-intuitively, lead to costly consequences.

Much of her field work focuses on examining the growing portion of employees who view work as a ‘calling’ including recent studies of animal shelter employees, wedding officiants, funeral directors, and those who work in residential care facilities. Her projects have been published in the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, and the Journal of Applied Psychology received multiple awards for their impact on academia and practice.
