Kate Odziemkowska is an Assistant Professor of Strategic Management. She received her Ph.D. in Management from Wharton. Her research focuses on cooperative strategy—formal interorganizational relationships such as alliances or collaborations—on ESG issues. More specifically, how and when strategically aligning with often-adversarial stakeholders, such as ESG activists, NGOs, and local communities can benefit firms, and the implications for stakeholders and society. Newer projects explore how cooperative and conflictual stakeholder relationships affect firm innovation, returns to corporate scope expansion, and political strategies. Her research has been published in top journals including Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, and the Strategic Management Journal, and has won awards such as the Responsible Research in Management Award from the Academy of Management Fellows, and the Best Conference PhD Paper Prize from the Strategic Management Society.
