Prof Martyna Sliwa
Professor of Business Ethics and Organisation Studies
|Professor of Business Ethics and Organisation Studies in the Business School|
I am a Professor of Business Ethics and Organisation Studies as well as Associate Dean for Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability at Durham University Business School. I joined Durham University in January 2022. Prior to that, I worked – for a total of 20 years – at three different UK universities: University of Essex, Newcastle University and the University of Northumbria.
Contributing to the academic community has been a strong theme throughout my career. For a long time now, I have been actively involved in editorial work for a range of journals. I currently serve as the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Management Learning. In addition, I am strongly committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion in universities, and in particular in business schools. Since July 2020, I have been the Vice Chair of the British Academy of Management for Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity.

In my research, I adopt an interdisciplinary, qualitative, humanities- and social sciences-based approach to studying management, organisations and the processes of organising. I am particularly interested in the multifaceted forms, intersections and implications of organisational diversity in the context of internationalisation and globalisation. Conceptually, my research has drawn from cultural studies, history, linguistics, literary theory, philosophy, sociology and translation studies. In recent years, the research projects I have been involved in have addressed the following areas: (1) languages, multilinguality and translation in organisations; (2) organisational diversity and inclusion, with a focus on gender and linguistic inclusion; (3) ethics of leadership; (4) global professional mobility and careers.
My teaching and supervision expertise covers a range of areas associated with business ethics and sustainability, management and organisation studies, and international management.
