Herminia Ibarra, Charles Handy Chair in Organisational Behaviour and Professor of Organisational Behaviour at London Business School, has been made a Fellow of the British Academy.

Professor Ibarra was elected to the Fellowship for her ground-breaking contributions to our understanding of how an individual’s professional identity in the workplace evolves over time.

The British Academy is the UK’s national academy for the humanities and social sciences. It provides research funding and acts as a forum for debate and engagement. Past Fellows have included Sir Winston Churchill, Baroness Mary Warnock and CS Lewis.

Professor Ibarra is one of 76 scholars elected to the Fellowship this year.

Professor Sir David Cannadine, President of the British Academy, said: “The British Academy has always recognised pioneering research in the humanities and social sciences, and 2019 is no exception. This year we have elected a particularly multi-skilled and versatile cohort of Fellows whose research crosses conventional academic boundaries.

“Our new Fellows’ wealth of expertise means the Academy is exceptionally well-placed to provide new knowledge and insights on the challenges of today. Their work has opened rich new seams of understanding and discovery, offering new perspectives on long-standing and emerging challenges alike.”
