The academy, an international association of management and organization scholars and practitioners, accords fellow status to recognize members for their significant contributions to the science and practice of management.

Upon learning of her election, Elsbach asked herself what real-world impact she had made. She responded in a that reads, in part, 鈥淔or me, the answer was that my work, in a small way, has helped people make sense of who they are as members of organizations (e.g., at work, hobbies, school, etc.). This includes understanding both their self-perceptions, as well as how others perceive them in their organizations.鈥

She noted her recent work with NASCAR fans, describing it as the first empirical field research to show a factor other than status or prestige as the primary motivator of organizational identification. 鈥淢y work helped them understand how needs for authenticity underlay their motivations to join,鈥 she wrote. 鈥淢ore importantly, it helped them understand that providing opportunities to be your 鈥榯rue self鈥 at work was important to most 别尘辫濒辞测别别蝉.鈥
