Associate Professor, Organizational Behaviour
Expertise: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, Technology in Learning, Overcoming Psychological Defenses
Zoe studies Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI), how it connects with identities, and interventions to enable everyone’s success. She recently co-designed a Virtual Reality research and learning tool for team decision-making and generally enjoys working on the boundaries of established practices to create better business education.
She publishes in respected peer-reviewed academic journals including the Journal of Applied Psychology and Organizational Behaviour and Human Decision Processes. Her work has also been featured in a variety of broader outlets, including Bloomberg Businessweek, The Case Centre, Forbes, Harvard Business Publishing, Harvard Business Review, Huffington Post, the New York Times, Programme Eve, and South China Morning Post. Having lived in North America, North Africa, and Southeast Asia, with recent leadership responsibilities in France and Singapore and now in Canada, Zoe has both a global perspective and a working knowledge of culture.
Zoe has taught at UC Santa Barbara, the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and at INSEAD. At INSEAD she earned tenure (2017) and was the founding Academic Director of their Gender Initiative (2017-2022), chaired their Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Taskforce (2020), and was the Organisational Behaviour Area Chair (2019-2022). She visited Rice University 2022-2023, before joining Ivey's Organizational Behaviour Department. Her deep desire for business education to enable current and future leaders to be both daring and societally responsible – with respect to technology and equitable and humanizing practices – led her to join Ivey Business School as the inaugural John F. Wood Chair in Innovation in Business Learning.
