Linda Schweitzer is a highly-distinguished and awarded Professor of Management at the Sprott School of Business. Dr. Schweitzer’s overarching research program examines the “modern career,” and her research is aimed to add clarity and robustness to the career journey—one that paints a truer picture of the realities one faces through their life. She is committed to see a shift in traditional societal thinking around careers as being associated with the “mountain we climb” to instead, describe the journey as the “stones we step” to get to the other side of the creek. “It’s not a destination; it’s a journey.”Dr. Schweitzer is also making major contributions to the understanding of generational diversity in the workforce including gender-wage gap; the representation of women in STEM; and diversity in management

She is dedicated to seeing cultural and societal advancements relating to multicultural work environments and establishing strategies that help immigrants adjust to a new country and its cultural milieu. Dr. Nardon has a multidisciplinary research program, where she delves into the sociological and behavioural side of business. Much of her research looks at how people think and behave within a work environment, which is often influenced by their cultural background.
Angela Dionisi is an Assistant Professor of Management at the Sprott School of Business. Her research focuses broadly on the areas of workplace mistreatment and leadership. Much of her research is focused on workplace sexual harassment, with special attention given to understudied victim populations (e.g. male victims; bystanders; targets’ family members). Moreover, Dr. Dionisi conducts research on the predictors (e.g., mental health; familial dynamics and demands) of destructive leadership behaviour. Through her research she aims to generate knowledge that can be used to foster healthier workplace environments. Her current research is aimed at examining the intersection between workplace sexual harassment and the family—both the family-based consequences of sexual harassment, and the family as a possible point of intervention. It is Dr. Dionisi’s goal to present and explore a whole new perspective on sexual harassment, its effects, and its prevention.

Her research areas of focus include global migrations, transnationalisms, diasporic formations and citizenship. She examines migrants’ reconfigurations of gender roles in productive and reproductive labour in a post-migratory context. Her current research interests lie in examining how gender and race are reproduced through migration policies in a neoliberal global world and the resulting transnational processes that temporary migrants, refugees and asylum seekers engage in and also their intersectional identities and acts of resistance.

Renate Ysseldyk is an Associate Professor of Health Sciences at Carleton University. Her research focuses on social determinants of health among potentially vulnerable populations (e.g., older adults, women who have experienced abuse, individuals who have experienced discrimination). She studies the influence of psychosocial factors, and especially particular social group identities (e.g., as a caregiver, a woman, or a person of religious faith), on coping with stressful experiences. Her research takes an interdisciplinary and community-based approach in order to contribute toward developing healthier societies for all by focussing on three interconnected themes: 1) healthy aging, 2) religious identity, and 3) coping with stress.
Jennifer Stewart is an Associate Professor of Health Economics, Labour Economics at the School of Public Policy & Administration at Carleton University. Her research is in the fields of health and labour economics, particularly in the areas where they overlap, such as the impact of labour force status on health status and vice versa.

One area of research examines the effect of maternal employment on long-run outcomes, such as employment, income, and post-secondary attendance. Another area of research examines the effect of maternal employment on the child’s likelihood of being overweight, in particular, we try to determine the reasons there is a relationship and factors that may moderate or exacerbate the relationship
