Dr Stephanie Schreven is a lecturer in Organizational Behaviour and Management at the University of Dundee School of Business (UDSB). She is also program director for the MSc in International Marketing as well as co-director of the Institute for Interdisciplinary Social Science Research (ISSR).

Before joining my colleagues at Dundee, I have held positions at the Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow, as well as the Judge Business School, University of Cambridge.

I started my academic career in the Netherlands, at the Radboud University, Nijmegen, and via a master’s in Business Administration at Erasmus University, Rotterdam, I ended up in upstate New York, with a PhD in the Social Sciences from the Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY.


My research interests include the critical study of diversity and inclusion, which is to say that I am mindful of how managing diversity and calls for inclusion displace questions and concerns over equality and inequality in the interest of corporate gain and at the expense of social change.

In addition, my research practices equality by listening carefully to those voices that are otherwise drowned out or go unheard, as well as of those that take the liberty to speak. Thus, I have an interest in (re-sensitizing) the methods we rely on, and how the politics, ethics and aesthetics as well as emotions involved of how we do research and teach shape what we know and the stories we hear and tell, as well as maintain and perpetuate the status quo.

Finally, I have a research interest in non-hegemonic cases of leadership that suggest it emerges from situations and includes the shifting dynamics between leaders and followers given struggles over power, authority and resistance, for instance.
