    Biography

    Dr. Carolyn Egri is the William J.A. Rowe EMBA Alumni Professor, and professor of management and organization studies. Carolyn is a pioneer in research related to corporate environmental and social responsibility - she has been publishing on this topic for more than 20 years, long before it became trendy. "It's meaningful work," she says. "Since it's a relatively new field, it's very exciting - there's the opportunity to develop new standards and ideas."

    Carolyn makes leadership and environmental sustainability the focus of her teaching, both for the Beedie School of Business and for other organizations. She is a recipient of the David L. Bradford Outstanding Educator Award (Organizational Behavior Teaching Society for Management Educators) and TD Canada Trust Distinguished Teaching award.

    A prolific researcher, she has been examining corporate environmental social responsibility practices as well as cross-cultural differences in managerial values and influence tactics around the world. Carolyn devotes much of her time to service in her academic community; she has been an Associate Editor for the Academy of Management Learning & Education journal, and a chair of the Academy of Management's Organizations and the Natural Environment interest group. She has also been a director of the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society and serves on a variety of academic journal editorial boards.
