Telfer students might recognize Magda Donia, a uOttawa Associate Professor of human resources management and organizational behaviour. Prof. Donia started her academic career by studying political science at McGill University. She later completed both her Masters and PhD at Concordia University. When asked why she chose to work at Telfer, Prof. Donia said: “I had a sense of the place I wanted to work – things [at Telfer] sort of flowed. There was a sense I can’t describe, but like a certainty that I could trust.” Over the course of her career, she’s learned that she’s in an incredibly lucky spot – being able to do something that she loves with colleagues she deeply trusts. She has a fairly big passion for OB, and recommends that others interested in the field learn how to operate with the negatives; in her opinion, a PhD can be a long and difficult road full of rejection – but it’s worth it in the end.  Read more ›

“I’ve always been inspired by several women in my life and others who have left their mark on History or became famous in the media. These include, among others, my mother and my aunts, independent ladies who work in male-dominated fields. I think also of Serena Williams, whom I admire for her exceptional athletic performances. I also think of Jane Austen, an English author who lived in the 18th century and wrote compelling, feminist texts.  Read more ›

“My favourite aspect of Telfer is the emphasis on student involvement in clubs and organizations. Getting involved in clubs such as WMN and AIESEC in Ottawa have been the highlight of my Telfer experience. Through them, I was not only able to meet some amazing people, but also develop myself personally and professionally. One of my proudest moments here was the development of Words with WMN, the first podcast from a Telfer Club. It gave me a creative platform to engage with new people and start some impactful conversations.  Read more ›
