Carol Lusk Awarded $6,000 Research Grant From the Center for Faith and the Common Good and the Vice Provost Research Fund at Pepperdine University
The Center for Faith and the Common Good and the Vice Provost Research Fund at Pepperdine University awarded Carol Lusk, an executive doctor of business administration (DBA) student at Pepperdine Graziadio Business School, a $6,000 research grant to support her dissertation research The Sacred and the Secular: The Impact of Religiosity and Gender on Leadership Attainment.
This research aims to increase the understanding of religiosity as an asset by providing theoretical insights into motivation to lead future leadership attainment by underrepresented groups, particularly religious women. Demonstrating the importance of organizational support for employees to bring their authentic selves to the workplace and balance the competing demands of work and personal life can help to increase the motivation to lead and future leadership attainment among these groups.
Lusk is working with Pepperdine Graziadio professors Cristina Gibson (supervisor), Kevin Groves (secondary advisor), and Denise Rousseau, the H.J. Heinz University Professor at Carnegie Mellon University (external advisor).
