Wilma Garvin

Senior Lecturer

I have worked at UEL since 2008 prior to that I did management consultancy work. I have done consultancy projects in the UK and in other countries. I speak several languages in addition to English. 

    I have done research into organisational development. I am interested in gender and currently I am researching into how women network.



    At the Royal Docks School of Business and Law, I focus on international management since I spent a long time working internationaly. I have been to most countries of the world for business purposes. I have a real interest in how different cultures operate and about the coming together of different cultures in a business context. For a long time, I have had a deep interest in languages.

    As already mentioned, I have done consultancy work in different countries, such as Russia, Japan, Egypt, the Czech Republic. For eight years, I worked with the Russian Ministry of Fuel and Gas where I often worked on management development projects. For ten years, I taught knowledge management to MBA students and I'm pleased to say that I am developing a new master's module on knowledge management.

    I am currently focusing on research into gender and as a result have presented at conferences such as Gender, Work and Organizations, The British Psychological Society.

    I am interested in organisation development and gender issues. Current research is on how women network and how this can have an impact on their careers.
    At UEL, I focus on international management and I often organise guest speakers on particular topics as well as organising guest speakers from other countries who can give students an insight into how things operate in other countries.

    I teach at undergraduate and postgraduate levels and I also supervise students when they are doing undergraduate projects and postgraduate dissertations.

    I am currently the Programme Leader for the undergraduate degree in HRM.
