Pamala J. Dillon earned her doctorate in Management from the Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in September of 2016.  She also has an MBA from the University of South Florida – St. Petersburg, an MA in International Affairs from American University, and a BA from Eckerd College. Through her 15 years of experience in non-profit management, as well as her involvement in the specialty coffee industry, she became interested in understanding how organizational members and leaders make sense of social responsibility.

Pamala’s research focuses on the intersection of social responsibility, leadership and organizational identity. Organizational identity provides an orienting lens to explore the social psychological processes happening in organizational contexts, especially as organizational members and leaders engage in and make sense of socially responsible practices. Pamala has taught organizational behavior, human resources management, strategic management and introduction to management, as well as managing public affairs.
