    Biography

    Dr. Angela Dionisi is an Assistant Professor of Management at the Sprott School of Business. Prior to joining Carleton, Dr. Dionisi earned both her PhD and MSc in Management (Organizational Behaviour) from the Smith School of Business, Queen’s University. 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.

    Dr. Dionisi is a highly awarded scholar with numerous notable (A-A+ ranking) publications in her field. Her work has been featured in outlets such as the Journal of Organizational Behavior, the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology and Leadership Quarterly. She is also a highly respected expert contributing to the development of major government policies (such as the Canadian Senate Policy on Prevention and Resolution of Harassment in the Workplace), and, is routinely sought-out by the media and public interest groups to speak about her research (such as the Federal Youth Network in partnership with the Canada School of Public Service to educate public servants across Canada). Moreover, she is an expert contributor for Psychology Today with articles that educate and inform readers under the title: “(Un)Well at Work: Exploring factors that can help and hinder your well-being, happiness, and success on the job.”

    Dr. Dionisi was awarded both a 2019 Research Achievement Award at Carleton University, as well as a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Insight Development Grant. These awards will be used to support a collection of projects 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.
