Laurie Barclay is an associate professor and OB/HRM area coordinator at Wilfrid Laurier University. Her research interests focus on identifying when and why individuals perceive unfairness in the workplace, how experiencing workplace injustice impacts individuals, groups, and organizations, as well as how leaders can promote fairness (and the obstacles that prevent them from doing so). She has a special interest in how victims of unfairness can recover from negative experiences and the role of emotion in experiences of injustice.
Barclay’s research has appeared in a number of top-tier outlets including the Academy of Management Annals, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Management, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. Her research has received numerous awards and has been supported by prestigious grants including the Ontario Early Researcher Award and multiple grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC). Barclay is also an enthusiastic teacher and mentor who has received multiple teaching awards and commendations including the Alumni Award of Excellence for Mentoring.
