Member Spotlight: Blake E. Ashforth

Winner of the AOM 2023 Distinguished Award for

Scholarly Contributions to Management

"No matter what school you belong to, where your travels may take you, or what your management-related interests are, you always have a home at AOM.”


Blake Ashforth is the winner of the AOM 2023 Distinguished Scholarly Contributions to Management Award for his major impact in the field of management through his work advancing research on social identity constructions, stigmatized jobs, and dysfunctions of organizational life.


“Winning the award has been both a huge surprise and very humbling. Pretty much everything I do is with terrific coauthors—especially my doctoral students—and this recognition is really for the great teams we've had. I can't imagine having done any of this without them.”


With over 100,000 citations on Google Scholar, Blake’s research has had a pivotal role introducing ideas, models, and empirical tests around the topics of individual and organizational identity. According to the awards committee, his work transcends traditional boundaries between micro and macro-management research. His research focus includes identity and identification (how we define ourselves in part through our work), socialization of newcomers, stigmatized jobs or “dirty work,” and the dysfunctions of organizational life, like corruption, burnout, and petty tyranny.
