A pleasant surprise for Dr. Ganga Sasidharan

Dr. Ganga Sasidharan recently presented her paper titled “Dialectics in corporate discourse on CSR in India: Key themes and drivers” at the ICA Conference 2012 in Phoenix, Arizona. This paper was among the top papers in the Division of Public Relations of this year’s conference. What came as a pleasant surprise for Ganga was the announcement from the division committee that her paper had also been chosen for the 2012 Bob Heath Top Paper Award for the top of the top papers!

Described it as a pleasant surprise turned into pure delight, Ganga said, “For this achievement so early in my academic career I must thank my supervisor Millie Rivera and my dissertation committee members, Mohan Dutta and Linda Perry who gave me the intellectual space and freedom to develop as a scholar in my own right.  I believe that this freedom enabled me to make a distinctive contribution to the body of knowledge.”

Congratulations, Ganga!
