The May 12 edition of the St. Petersburg Times (Florida) included the perspective of Clinical Professor of Marketing Timothy Calkins, who addressed issues of branding. "We live in a very cluttered world, so it's very hard for marketers to break through and get attention," said Calkins. "That's why marketers keep pushing the edge. There's a desire to be different. Some people just substitute sex for creativity and that's unfortunate." Calkins also was quoted in a May 27 Chicago Tribune article about top companies, titled, "Area's diversity pays off for firms; Many stocks enjoy market-beating gains."

"Students and Nonprofits: Mutually Beneficial Relationships." Clinical Professor of Social Enterprise Anne Cohn Donnelly shared her ideas on management education in this May 8 Wall Street Journal article.

"How Diversity Makes a Team Click." This April 22 New York Times article included the expertise of Jeanne Brett, the DeWitt W.

"The Opt-Out Myth: Most moms have to work to make ends meet. So why does the press write only about the elite few who don't?" In the March/April edition of Columbia Journalism Review, Amy Cuddy, assistant professor of management and organizations, analyzed concerns with media portrayal of certain career choices. "People who've left promising careers to stay home with their kids aren't going to say, 'I was forced out. I really want to be there.' It gives people a sense of control that they may not actually have," said Cuddy.
