Ana María Peredo is a Tier 1 Canada Research Chair and Full Professor of Social and Inclusive Entrepreneurship at the Telfer School of Management. She was formerly Professor of Political Ecology at the School of Environmental Studies and Director of the Centre for Co-operative and Community-Based Economy, both at the University of Victoria, Canada.
Dr. Peredo’s work has contributed to understanding the ways communities can address poverty by constructing rewarding and sustainable livelihoods out of resources in their distinctive cultures and environments. She draws on her academic training in Anthropology and Management and extensive experience in the Andes of her native Peru to explore alternative economies and their impact on the social and environmental aspects of community.
Ana Maria has published several seminal pieces on community-based enterprises, Indigenous entrepreneurship, social enterprises, and solidarity economy. Her work has been published in journals such as the Academy of Management Review, Journal of Business Ethics, Journal of Business Venturing, Entrepreneurship, Theory and Practice, Organization, World Development, Journal of Peasant Studies, and several other prominent journals and foundational anthologies.
She has received a number of awards and fellowships and serves on several academic and professional boards. Currently, she is the Associate Editor of Organization, Co-Coordinator of the European Group for Organizational Studies’ Standing Working Group on Organization Studies in the Anthropocene and Past President of the Western Academy of Management.
Ana María currently focuses on three inter-connected areas: (1) Alternative Organizations and Solidarity Economies: community-based entrepreneurship, co-operatives, community-based economies/ co-operative economies, common-property social enterprises, social justice, local currencies, small businesses networks; (2) Indigenous Economies and Decolonization: Indigenous Entrepreneurship, Indigenous social Innovation, critical entrepreneurship, impacts of development/business projects, Indigenous movements and ontologies; (3) Alternative Futures: Social movements, De-Growth-Post-Growth Movements. She welcomes opportunities to work with accomplished graduate students who have a specific focus in these areas.
