Doctor Sheree Gregory
Human Resources and Management (SoBus)
I lecture first year Managing People at Work, second/third year Innovation and Professional Practice, Leadership for Executive MBA, and have developed Entrepreneurship Foundations, in the School of Business. I am an experienced HDR thesis Examiner and Supervisor in women, dads and work; caring and labour; work/life issues.
In 2018 I was invited to the Talent Flows subcommittee of the NSW Innovation & Productivity Council. Since 2017 I am a member of the editorial advisory board of International Small Business Journal (SAGE), Institute for Culture and Society, Digital Humanities Research Group, recipient of a 2016 Women's Fellowship, and was Reviews Editor and Board member of Media International Australia journal (SAGE).
My research track record is in gender and work/life. My research is published in prestigious journals such as Entrepreneurship, Theory & Practice. I have collaborated on 3 Australian Research Council Linkage grants studying family business entrepreneurial succession, employee work/life integration in manufacturing, and young people's cultural activities. My work has informed screen industry and organisational policy for caring and well-being; international and domestic industry projects, and has been the basis of international and domestic journal articles. I have worked on research projects with industry partners: Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance; and ARC Linkages with GM Holden Ltd. & Sydney Water (RMIT, University of Sydney); Pitcher Partners (Swinburne), 13 arts organisations/councils (University of Melbourne), and liaised with a former Sex Discrimination Commissioner of Australia for work/family and gender research.
Twice a Visiting Scholar: 2019 Brown University in USA; 2016 UEH in Vietnam.
In 2015, I was appointed by the Dean to the School of Business Research Committee. From 2012, I was national convenor of Work, Employment and Social Movements thematic group, Australian Sociological Association. I am joint-editor of two monographs on Women and Work (RMIT 2006, 2007).
Prior to joining Western Sydney University, I was Lecturer of Management at RMIT, member of the Centre for Sustainable Organisations and Work, and Digital Ethnography Research Centre. I co-convened the 2014 Work and Life in the Creative Economy Symposium (RMIT, University of Melbourne, MEAA) and Chaired the Equity and Diversity Panel. I completed a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship and delivered the 2013 Swinburne University Dean’s Lecture in Social Science. I have taught Strategic Management; Global Entrepreneurship; Legal Studies; Sociology; Human Resource Management; Employment Relations; Organisational Theory and Behaviour; International Business and Strategy; Public Policy; Research Methods; and co-developed a postgraduate unit on International Strategy. In 2015, my teaching was re cognised when I was awarded an RMIT College of Business teaching award.
