Stacey Fitzsimmons recognized for research excellence from Women in the Academy of International Business (WAIB)


Stacey Fitsimmons received the Emerging Scholar Award from the Women in the Academy of International Business in June 2016 for her exemplary research record since she received her PhD from Simon Fraser University in 2011. Her accomplishments include 14 publications: 11 as first author, and 10 of them peer-reviewed. Her publications are published in premiere management journals including two in Academy of Management Review, one in Journal of International Business Studies and one in Organization Studies. Stacey also received a best paper proceedings award from the Academy of Management in 2016 for her paper “When knowledge crosses levels: Integrating knowledge and predicting resistance”.

Her current research examines how bicultural and multicultural employees contribute to global teams and organizations. She is also interested in how organizational contexts, such as workforce demographics and organizational culture, influence bicultural employees. This research can help organizations design policies and practices that leverage the often unrecognized resources available among multicultural employees.

The Women of the Academy of International Business was established in 2001 to provide a forum for networking among women in the Academy of International Business members, mentoring and promoting research on gender and gender-related issues in international business.
