It is an honor to be writing for On the Legal Front again. I am delighted that Rich has done such outstanding work with the column, and, as expected, EEO matters continue to be of relevance to the SIOP community. During my tenure as columnist I devoted substantial space in this column to Supreme Court rulings, and the unique and varying perspectives of Supreme Court justices involved in each ruling.1 With the death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016, the Court lost a stable and influential conservative judicial voice. Although we took a long and winding road to formally identify a Supreme Court nominee that will actually go through a confirmation process, Neil Gorsuch is President Trump’s candidate.

The most daunting part about starting a tenure-track position was building a research pipeline that would sustain me through tenure. This shouldn’t be surprising; most new faculty talk about the “publish or perish” mentality that comes with academia, and I certainly found myself in that category. Honestly, if you ask most of the people I collaborate with, they will still say that I am fairly vocal about my fears surrounding publishing. Personally, I think half of the battle is finding the people you “click” with—who are interested in similar ideas, who will challenge you in a productive manner, and who make you want to be a better researcher. The second half of the battle, however, is trying to figure out what to be researching in the first place.

Not only have Joyce and Robert Hogan independently advanced the science and practice of workplace personality, but the Hogan’s joint contributions to the field are, to say the least, quite impressive. As such, the Hogan Personality Award was established in honor of the Hogans’ collective body of work and, more specifically, to recognize research advancing the understanding of personality as it relates to work performance.
