Jan Lodge is an Assistant Professor in the Business-Society Management department at the Rotterdam School of Management.
In his research he explores the question of how organizations and individuals work to foster social change. In this context he is primarily interested in how actors create, experience, and manage negative social evaluations (e.g., stigma, disapproval). Beyond this, he also undertakes research in the areas of misconduct, scandals, social innovation, and institutional theory, which he explores through qualitative methods covering in-depth interviewing, participant observations, and archival sources.
Most recently, Jan has conducted research in an exciting array of empirical settings including social housing organizations, reentry organizations, capital punishment in the U.S., religious minority groups, and child marriage in Indonesia.
Prior to joining academia, he was a management consultant at L.E.K. Consulting where he supported international clients across various industries in developing their organisational design, market entry, and growth strategies.
Jan holds a Ph.D. form the University of Cambridge, Judge Business School.
