Dr. Teresa Harrison, Associate Professor of Management in the H-E-B School of Business, studies diversity and has published scholarly research on topics including immigrant experiences in the workplace as well as national and international cultural value differences and job choice preferences. Because of her research background, she has been able to conduct workshops for practitioners to discuss difficult conversations in the workplace leading to an appreciation of diversity, equity, and inclusiveness. Her ‘Leading a Diverse Workforce’ MBA special topics course has been well received and helps create leaders in organizations who champion those who may be different from themselves, especially in terms of nationality, race, ethnicity, gender, religion, and ability. Additionally, she teaches courses at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the areas of Organizational Behavior, Business Communication, Human Resources Management, Strategic Management (Capstone), and other special topics. Within each course, special care is taken to purposefully examine individual differences and global perspectives to transform our students to future leaders in the workplace.
