From a press release:
Smith received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from Case Western Reserve University and her BS from Spelman College.
Smith is one of only 181 female, African-American, management business school professors in the U.S., most of whom have become professors since The PhD Project was created in 1994.
The Project's vision is to diversify corporate America by increasing the number of minority business professors (African-American, Hispanic-American and Native American), who attract more minority students to study business in college.
"Dr. Smith has succeeded in the very difficult endeavor of being granted Tenure,” said Bernard J. Milano, president of The PhD Project and president of the KPMG Foundation, founder and lead Sponsor of the program.
“She has demonstrated dedication, hard work and intelligence and is influencing the next generation of business leaders as she continues on her impressive career path. The PhD Project takes great pride in her achievements, and looks forward to following her success throughout her career.”
