Dr. Teresa Harrison will present as part of the Brown Bag Research Series on April 9, 2019, in the Gorman Building, room 120. The 60-minute presentation will begin at noon.
Dr. Harrison will present on the topic of "Strangers in strained lands: Learning from workplace experiences of immigrant employees."
Immigrants have become an important source of talent as well as a flashpoint for conflict in many countries. Alongside established streams of immigrant research, we hope to galvanize interest among management scholars, particularly about immigrant employees. Ideas about creativity and voice, diversity, coworker and supervisor support and antagonism and social network structures are presented to help generate broader research agendas that include immigrant employee experiences and contributions to promote partnerships with organizations for integrating immigrants more fully into the workplace (Harrison, D., University of Texas, Harrison, T. UIW, & Shaffer, M. University of Oklahoma).
The Brown Bag Research Presentation Series is designed to promote research and draw attention to the ongoing academic exploration occurring in the H-E-B School of Business. The discussions offer faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and members of the business community an opportunity to present their work and engage in scholarly dialogue. Brown Bag Research Presentations are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters.
