Postgraduate Teaching

Organizational Behaviour; Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Organizations

Research Interests

Ivona’s main program of research includes workplace equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). In her work, she focuses on gender, but also examines issues surrounding race, ethnicity, language and accent including intersection of various identities that we all hold.

Ivona’s work has provided important insights for leaders, organizations, and governments on how to effectively manage and leverage an ever increasingly diverse workforce to thrive in today’s global economy. Importantly, her work has provided insights into how to do so in a socially responsible way by promoting and increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion in the workplace.

For more information on her and her graduate students’ research, please visit her lab website.

Other Interests

Ivona is a proud mom of two young kids! They keep her very busy and on the go with various activities including ice hockey (coming from Canada I never thought I would need to clarify that it is ice hockey I am referring to and this will be an adjustment and potential pivot to a field hockey for my daughter as we start our life in Oxford).

Ivona and her family of four love travelling and exploring new places, cultures, and food.
