Curriculum Vitae


Fernanda Wagstaff
My featured awards
Associate Professor, Marketing and Management

The overarching questions that have permeated my research over the last ten years are: a) do we follow fair business practices, and b) how do employees and employers respond to differential treatment?

In answering these questions, I have focused most of my research on topics related to diversity issues at work, particularly those related to racial/ethnic background, gender, age, weight, nationality, disability, and biculturalism. Within this framework, I am also interested in international human resource management, an area in which I have researched how diversity is conceptualized across the world. For example, are females or nationals more, less, or equally likely to be offered jobs than males and non-nationals?

My examination of fair business practices has also triggered my interest in understanding the relationship between business ethics and young people. My current work relates to how teenagers conceptualize business ethics in general and what is right or wrong in business practices in particular.
