L: Regulation and Governance
Ruthanne Huising is Professor of Management and Organizations, and Director of the WorkTechOrg Research Center at Emlyon Business School. Her research is motivated by the documented difficulties in achieving organizational compliance with regulations, standards, and other ethical and social expectations. Using ethnographic methods, Ruthanne studies the organizational processes that are central in shaping how compliance is understood and practiced within and across organizations. Within organizations she examines how prosocial demands are harmonized, translated, and implemented, analyzing issues of expertise and power. Across organizations, she examines governance processes, including the organized spaces in which stakeholders (regulators, social movement actors) and members of organizations interact to negotiate the meaning of organizational compliance and develop resources to facilitate organizational compliance. Ruthanne is a Deputy Editor at Organization Science and founder of the Ethnography Atelier. She received her Ph.D. from the Sloan School of Management at M.I.T. Prior to joining Emlyon, she was as Associate Professor and William Dawson Scholar at McGill University.
