Professor Emmanuel Ogbonna, Professor of Management and Organization has been conferred with Fellowship of the Academy of Social Sciences (FAcSS).

Professor Ogbonna’s research interests cut across the fields of organization studies, strategy, marketing and human resource management. His recent research interests have been in the areas of organizational culture, equality, diversity and inclusion, and his work has explored the position of Black and minority ethnic communities in the labour market.

New Fellows are recognised for the excellence and impact of their work and their wider contributions to the social sciences for public benefit. Professor Ogbonna was nominated for the award by another Learned Society, British Academy of Management, of which he is also a Fellow.

The Academy’s Fellowship is made up of distinguished individuals from academic, public, private and third sectors, across the full breadth of the social sciences.

Earlier this year, Professor Ogbonna was welcomed to the Learned Society of Wales Fellowship, joining academics who play a significant role in Welsh public life.

I am delighted and honoured to be recognised by the Academy in this way. I am especially pleased that the award recognises not only the contributions I have made to management research but also my work in co-chairing the Welsh Government Steering Group that is leading the development of the Anti-racist Wales Race Equality Action Plan.

Will Hutton, President of the Academy of Social Sciences, said: “As the Academy extends its outward-facing focus, engagement with all sectors of the social science community is vitally important and I very much hope to draw on the deep knowledge and expertise of our new Fellows.”
