Description and title forthcoming.
Dr. Rachael Pettigrew ’97
Dr. Pettigrew is a management professor at Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada. Her research draws on her interdisciplinary educational background (i.e., Business, Sociology, and Child and Family Studies) to explore topics related to gender in the workplace, work-life balance, family-friendly policies, as well as diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Using an interdisciplinary lens, Dr. Pettigrew will discuss the urgency of building more inclusive workplaces. Rooted in her research and bolstered by demographic data, she will present her vision for future workplaces, including building inclusive spaces with fewer barriers for employees, de-gendering workplace policies, and increasing the visibility of all types of care responsibilities in the workplace.
