An Evening with Prof. Patricia Hewlin
Authenticity & The Minority Perspective: An evening with Professor Patricia Hewlin
In celebration of Black History Month, MACES and CATS (Career Advising & Transition Services) invite you to join us on February 10 at 5:30 p.m. for an insightful evening featuring Professor Patricia Hewlin from Desautels, Faculty of Management at McGill University as she guides us through the nuances of authenticity and some of the challenges faced by minorities in showing up as their full selves.

Dr. Patricia Faison Hewlin joined McGill University in 2010. She conducts research on how organization members and leaders engage in authentic expression, as well as factors that impede authenticity in every day work interactions. Her research has centered on employee silence, and the degree to which members suppress personal values and pretend to embrace those of the organization, a behavior she has termed as “creating facades of conformity”. Her research interests also include gaining insight on how members cope with perceived organizational value breaches in megachurches and other values-driven organizations. With the support of Canada's Social Science and Humanities Research Council, Professor Hewlin's research has expanded to studying the role of authenticity and values among diverse organizational leaders and entrepreneurs in Canada, US and Asia.

She is published in the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Organization Science, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, Group and Organization Management, Harvard Business Review, and edited volumes and books including Positive Organizing in a Global Society, Research on Managing Groups and Teams, Exploring Positive Identities and Organizations, and The Business of Culture. Professor Hewlin is an active member of the Academy of Management. She has served as an invited Associate Editor for Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and is on the editorial board for Organization Science.
