Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Is On Faculty of Carey and JHU's Medical, Nursing Schools 

Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Kathleen Sutcliffe has been elected to the Fellows Group of the Academy of Management, the leading professional association for scholars of management and organization.

A member of the faculty of Johns Hopkins University’s Carey Business School, School of Medicine, and School of Nursing, Sutcliffe was chosen as an AOM Fellow at the group’s 78th annual meeting, held August 10-14 in Chicago.

Sutcliffe, an expert in high-reliability organizing, resilience, organizational change, and managing risk and uncertainty, earned a PhD in management from the University of Texas at Austin. She joined Johns Hopkins in 2014 as one of the first six Bloomberg Distinguished Professors named by the university. The professorships, made possible by a $350 million gift from Johns Hopkins alumnus and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, seek to promote interdisciplinary scholarship across JHU. As of last month, 34 of a planned 50 Bloomberg Distinguished Professors have been appointed.

From 1996 to 2014, Sutcliffe was a faculty member and an associate dean for faculty development and research at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. With Karl Weick, a Ross School professor emeritus of organizational behavior and psychology, she co-authored the influential book Managing the Unexpected, published in a third edition by Jossey-Bass in 2015.

The Academy of Management was established in 1936 and comprises nearly 20,000 members in more than 120 countries.

According to the AOM website, the Fellows Group aims “to recognize and honor members of the Academy of Management who have made significant contributions to the science and practice of management, and to provide opportunities for fellowship and a forum for discussion among persons so recognized and honored.”
