Danna Greenberg is the Walter H. Carpenter Professor of Organizational Behavior.
Danna's primary area of research examines how people craft full work and nonwork lives throughout their careers. The broad questions that drive her research are how do people manage work-life transitions in today’s demanding work world, how does this influence their identity, engagement, and performance at work, and how do organizational and societal factors influence an individual's integration of work-nonwork. Danna's scholarship is guided by the belief that individuals can and should be able to live full lives at work and at home and that by challenging current assumptions regarding work we can find better ways for businesses, families, and communities to thrive. She is currently working on a forthcoming book entitled Momish: Crafting Your Work-Life Story.
Danna's second stream of research centers on the scholarship of teaching and learning. Here she is focused on the continued changing landscape of higher education and how can we innovate and expand current pedagogy to better support the cognitive, emotional, and character development of future entrepreneurial leaders. She has written a book on this topic entitled The New Entrepreneurial Leader.
Danna has published more than 30 articles and book chapters in leading journals including Academy of Management Journal, Human Resource Management, and Academy of Management Learning and Education. She serves on the editorial board for the Academy of Management Learning and Education and the Journal of Management Education and as a reviewer for Human Resources Management, Journal of Organizational Behavior, and Human Relations. In the community, she serves as a consultant and board member to nonprofits that are focused on community building, education, and the social and emotional development of children. She and her husband are the proud parents of three active engaged teenagers.
Danna received her BA in Psychology from Wellesley College graduating magna cum laude and her PhD in Organizational Studies from Boston College graduating with first year distinction.
