Emily Lean
Instructor of Business

Union University business instructor Emily Lean joined three colleagues to tackle a difficult and sensitive question: how does intimate partner domestic violence impact the workplace?

The answers to that disturbing but increasingly relevant question resulted in an article named best paper of the year at The Academy of Management Annual Meeting in Chicago. The international association has more than 19-thousand members in 108 nations.

The article was titled "Coming into the Light: Intimate Partner Violence and its Effects at Work." It appeared in Academy of Management Perspectives, a journal published by the Academy of Management.

Even for scholars with decades of experience, awards of this magnitude can be elusive. Lean says she was surprised by the honor, which comes as she begins as a Union faculty member. Lean's co-authors are Anne O'Leary Kelly and Carol Reeves of the University of Arkansas, and Jane Randel of Liz Claiborne, Inc.
