Researcher of Organizational Governance

My Research in the Spotlight

Research News

I am elated to announce that I received funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada for research on gender inequalities in organizations!

In April 2022, SSHRC has awarded an Insight Grant of $139,918 to the research program “Disruptive Dames? The process of disruption underlying women’s transition into organizational leadership,” which I direct as a principal investigator. The research program explores the process underlying the disruption of gender inequalities in the leadership of for-profit organizations in Canada.

The research team for this program includes my colleagues at Concordia University, Professors Joel Bothello and Anne-Marie Croteau.

We are looking forward to executing this important research program.

My most-read article in The Conversation

In the “Five ways to deal with burnout,” I discuss how we can get out of burnout, emphasizing how burnout is fundamentally a symptom of a problematic organization rather than an issue that individuals are to blame for.

This summer, I had the pleasure of attending the 2023 Association Française de Comptabilité (AFC) conference in Lyon, France. 

I participated in a panel discussion of the working group on diversity in accounting research.

The panel was a first in the history of the AFC: so far, there’s never been a working group on diversity.

Why are there such persistent gender inequalities in Canadian leadership? How can we build trust in organizations?

A Bit About Myself

I am the RBC Professor in Responsible Organizations and an Associate Professor at the John Molson School of Business of Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.

My research focuses on organizations, their governance, and gender inequalities. Governance is concerned with how organizations are run, and how the different people involved in running organizations behave. I am currently exploring the ways in which organizational governance contributes to upholding and disrupting gender inequalities.

My studies have been published in leading academic journals, including the Journal of Accounting & Economics, Critical Perspectives on Accounting, and Human Relations.
