Drawing from Albert and Whetten’s (1985) classic definition of organizational identity as the distinctive, core, and enduring features of an organization (see also Whetten, 2006), such a concept seems to emphasize continuity and cohesion. In addition, identities are often conceptualized in terms of structures. Micro-sociologists, for example, tie identity to social structures, namely roles (Stryker, 1987; Stryker and Burke, 2000); psychologists make links to cognitive structures such as schemas (Markus, 1977).
