Boston, MA – Ellen Pinkos Cobb, Senior Regulatory & Legal Analyst in The Isosceles Group's Boston office, has been named a founding fellow of the U.S. Academy on Workplace Bullying, Mobbing and Abuse. The Academy is a joint initiative between the Workplace Bullying Institute and the New Workplace Institute. It supports and promotes the multidisciplinary work of leading and emerging educators, researchers, practitioners, writers and advocates who are dedicated to understanding, preventing, stopping, and responding to workplace bullying and related forms of interpersonal mistreatment.
"For over a year, we've been contemplating how to bring together an American network of leading and emerging experts on workplace bullying and related topics. The Academy is our conduit for doing so," says David Yamada, Suffolk University law professor and director of the New Workplace Institute. "We look forward to highlighting the good works of these incredible people."
The Academy has over 50 fellows, including leading psychological researchers, physicians, attorneys, occupational health experts, professors of management, nursing, and communications, counselors, union trainers, military leaders, advocates, and consultants. Among this elite group of founding fellows is Ms. Cobb, author of Bullying, Violence, Harassment, Discrimination and Stress: Emerging Workplace Health and Safety Issues, an international review of legislation, compliance guidelines, and developments on workplace bullying.
"I am honored to have been invited to serve as a Founding Fellow of the Academy and join this network of professionals focused on the unique challenges posed by American employee relations, mental health and legal systems," says Ms. Cobb. "It is an exciting opportunity that will allow me to contribute my knowledge and understanding of global workplace bullying initiatives to an organization at the forefront of this issue here in the United States."
