Title Professor Dr.

E-mail regine.bendl@wu.ac.at

Regine Bendl is full professor and chair of the Institute for Gender and Diversity in Organizations at the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna). Her research interests are (gender) subtexts in organization theory and diversity in organizations. Deeply committed to antidiscrimination, equality and inclusion, she is interested in pursuing how to approach and respond to potential challenges of disruption and division caused by recent populism, nationalism and extreme political polarization. Taking stock of ‘where are we’ in the field of diversity in organizations as regards these illiberal developments, ‘where is the field we going’ and ‘what to do in which context’ serves as leitmotif for her SCANCOR research.

E-mail Joaquin.Cestino@ju.se

I am interested in organizational processes resulting in either persistence or emergence. In my dissertation I am attending research questions related to how resource constrained startups bring heterogeneity to the institutional context they enter. In dealing with these questions, I am attempting to contribute to theories of micro-foundations of legitimacy, bricolage and hybrid entrepreneurship. Since September of 2017, I have been engaged in field research of journalism startups in the NYC area.

Kirsti’s research interest lies broadly in examining the role of large corporations and their relationship to other societal actors, that is consumers, communities, governments and civil society organizations, in dealing with societal issues. She is especially interested in understanding how large corporations can either support or hinder sustainable development goals towards a healthier society and environment. She approaches her topics using discursive methods and several theoretical perspectives, such as legitimacy, organizational paradoxes and institutional logics.
