Noteworthy: Leana was selected to be a 2016 Resident Scholar at the Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio Center in Bellagio, Italy.

Age: 62

Residence: Squirrel Hill

Family: Son, Joe Goldman; daughter, Leanna Goldman

Occupation: George H. Love Professor of Organizations and Management at the University of Pittsburgh; director, Center for Healthcare Management

Education: B.A., English, Baylor University, 1976; Ph.D., Organizational Science, University of Houston, 1985

Background: The Rockefeller Foundation's resident scholar program is a four-week residency program that has been offered to Nobel laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, National Book Award recipients and MacArthur Fellows. Leana will join a group of 14 international scholars from various disciplines whose work broadly examines human behavior. In addition to the Rockefeller honor, Leana is playing a lead role in developing Pitt's Executive MBA in Healthcare program, which will launch in 2017.

Quote: “I hope to accomplish two things (with the Rockefeller residency). One is to finish up some of my work in the area, and the second is to develop some new principles for how workplaces might change to lessen inequality and improve economic prospects for the middle-class.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
