Margaret Neale receives alumni award
Margaret Neale, a professor in the Graduate School of Business, is the 1999 recipient of the Jaedicke Silver Apple Award, presented by the Stanford Business School Alumni Association for her outstanding service to its graduates.
"To earn this award, I got to go to Paris and give a talk to a room filled with people who thought what I was saying was interesting," joked Neale, who accepted the award during Alumni Weekend activities Oct. 16. In addition to speaking at the school's alumni conference in France, Neale has delivered talks to alumni programs in Australia, been a frequent speaker at alumni chapter events in the United States and abroad, and made presentations on several occasions to the association's annual Women's Conferences. "I'm feeling a little guilty for taking an award for doing things that make me feel really good," said Neale, who is the John G. McCoyBanc One Corporation Professor of Organizations and Dispute Resolution. She also is an associate dean for academic affairs in the Business School.
The award is named for Robert K. Jaedicke, an emeritus dean of the Business School, and is presented annually to recognize a faculty member who contributes to programs designed for the school's alumni.
