From Calling Out to Calling In: A Virtuous Response to Racial Injustice

Talk description:

My research investigates how organizational practices, norms, and policies perpetuate marginalization, and how marginalized individuals and organizations, in turn, navigate and resist marginalization. I use multiple methods and bring critical social theories in conversation with positive, strength-based approaches to explore these facets of organizational life. The aim of my research is to expand diversity, equity, and inclusion in organizations by dismantling systemic inequality and cultivating new equitable societies where everyone may thrive.

Research is the heart of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS), and we want to make sure that we support each other in developing high quality research. To that end, we created the Adderley Positive Research Incubator for sharing and encouraging POS-related research ideas that are at various stages of development.
