BWIS Lecture

"Advantage, Absence of Advantage, and Disadvantage Among Scientists and Engineers"

Presented by Nancy DiTomaso, Rutgers Business School

Tuesday, September 23, 2008, 12:00 pm — Berkner Hall Auditorium

DiTomaso will base her talk on survey data on the career experiences of 3,200 scientists and engineers from 24 major companies. Her survey findings indicate that most people who do well in their careers and make significant contributions to their organizations get assistance from others in their workplace in many forms, including offering opportunities such as good projects, providing resources that make good performance more likely, and opening up networking possibilities. DiTomaso will report on the results of the survey and provide a theoretical framework for understanding how these processes work in a research and development environment.
