Michael Pirson won the Social Issues in Management (SIM) Division’s Best Book Award at this year’s Academy of Management Conference. He is an associate professor at the Gabelli School of Business at Fordham University . Dr Johanne Grosvold, Deputy Director of the Centre for Business, Organisations and Society, chaired the SIM Division’s Best Book Award Committee, and as such was privy to all the books nominated for this year’s award.
