Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Jo-Ellen Pozner joined Santa Clara University's Leavey School of Business in the fall of 2016. Before that, she was on faculty at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley.


Her research focuses on questions of organizational ethics, corporate governance, social evaluation, and social movements. She is interested in the processes through which we make sense of and evaluate others, particularly around instances of wrongdoing and scandal. The second area of interest investigates the intersection of social movements and markets, including research on movements that promoted organic food, bean-to-bar chocolate, micro-breweries, and low-power FM radio. Finally, she has a particular interest in organizational misconduct, specifically the ways in which misconduct at the organizational level impacts top management and boards of directors at the companies involved. 

Pozner graduated with a Ph.D. in Management and Organizations from the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. She holds an MBA from the Stern School of Business, New York University; a Masters in Economics from the School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University; and a BSFS in International Economics from the School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University.
