Danna Greenberg

Walter H. Carpenter Professor, Organizational Behavior, Babson College

Danna holds a B.A. in Psychology from Wellesley College graduating magna cum laude with honors in the major and a Ph.D. in Organizational Studies from Boston College graduating with first year distinction.

Danna’s main area of research investigates how individuals navigate the relationship between work, family, and community as their careers and lives evolve. The broad questions that drive her research are how do people manage work-life transitions in today’s demanding work world, how does this influence their identity, engagement, and performance at work, and how do organizational and societal factors influence individuals’ ability to craft full, meaningful lives. Danna’s scholarship is guided by the belief that individuals can and should be able to live full lives at work and at home and that by challenging current assumptions regarding work we can find better ways for businesses, families, and communities to thrive.
