Michelle Lopez (DBA ’22)

Headshot of Michelle Lopez

“I have over 10 years of experience in Boeing’s airplane manufacturing and production lines and have worked in 4 different organizations as both a teammate and a manager. This doctorate coupled with my dissertation will help position me for a move into Boeing’s research group to study organizational behavior. In this role, I aim to use my research to advance Boeing’s sustainability efforts by teaching the executive coaches how to help our company leaders take action, display sustainability behavior, and build relationships that achieve sustainability within the company walls.”
