Professor Stephanie J. Creary is an identity and diversity scholar and field researcher. She is also an affiliated faculty member of Wharton People Analytics and a Senior Fellow of the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI). A fundamental challenge in organizations lies in eliciting and learning from multiple perspectives and experiences while minimizing the conflict that can ensue when differences become more salient or when individuals are pressured to conceal valued aspects of themselves at work. Professor Creary’s research examines how workers manage this tension and engage their multiple identities in an enhancing way to cultivate positive identities and improve the quality of relationships across difference. She also examines how workers engage their different and sometimes conflicting experiences to promote change that is positive for their well-being and for their organization’s success. She investigates these phenomena in the contexts of diversity initiatives, socia(Show Full Bio)lization and professional training, and health care delivery.

Prior to joining the Wharton faculty, Professor Creary was on the faculty of Cornell University. Prior to completing her PhD degree, she was a research associate at Harvard Business School and The Conference Board in NYC. She also has extensive work experience in the health care industry. Professor Creary has earned B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Boston University Sargent College of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences; an MBA degree from Simmons School of Management; and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Boston College Carroll School of Management.

The early days of Cousins Maine Lobster are very similar to those of Apple or Facebook, in that they were founded by men in California. In 2011, as Father Winter vomited snow on Boston, Jim made the trek out to Los Angeles to visit Sabin, for some vitamin D and to reconnect with Sabin. Over an afternoon of playing NHL ‘94, a game they began playing in Maine when it was released and still played on a daily basis in the CML offices 20 years later, the Cousins discussed business opportunities.

They talked childhood, huge pots boiling in the backyard, running around with buttery ears of corn (pronounced “Kahn”) and picnic tables built for 8 seating 10 messy, bibbed kids elbows deep in a steaming hot lobster. They talked about the burgeoning Food Truck industry that was taking over the LA food scene, bringing delicious, unconventional cuisines to the masses cheaply and efficiently. After surveying the landscape, they realized that LA was missing those tasty Maine traditions they fawn(Show Full Bio)ed over. They decided to pool their savings and launch a food truck that celebrated Maine and served the bounty of their state the only way they knew it: fresh.
