Julia DiBenigno, assistant professor of organizational behavior, has been named to Thinker50’s Radar Class of 2022, which recognizes 30 thinkers to watch in the coming year. Thinkers50, which collaborated with Deloitte on the Radar ranking, has identified, ranked, and shared leading management thinkers and ideas since 2001.
The honorees include academics, entrepreneurs, and authors. “The Radar Class of 2022 is an exceptional group of thinkers, whose ideas, hard work and passion we believe can make a real difference in the world,” the organization said. “They may not have all the answers, but they are asking important questions about the business world and the sort of society we want to live in.”
