- Prof. Jennifer Chatman and Assoc. Prof. Sameer Srivastava launched the Berkeley Haas Culture Initiative to explore the role of culture and its impact in and across organizations—and to help make Berkeley a hub for advancing the field. The initiative kicked off with the 2019 Berkeley Haas Culture Conference, a gathering of 52 academic thought leaders (from economics, anthropology, sociology, and psychology) and 58 industry leaders from 12 culture-aware companies (including Netflix, Zappos, Pixar Animation Studios, and Deloitte) to address challenges surrounding culture.
