Brittany Lambert is a third-year PhD candidate in Organizational Leadership at Leeds School of Business. Prior to joining Leeds, Brittany worked in strategy consulting at Deloitte and most recently managed special projects for the Chief Strategy Officer. She holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from Miami University of Ohio. Her research within Organizational Behavior, is primarily focused on “Emotions” and “Mental Health” in the workplace. Her other projects are spanning topics such as female leadership, vulnerability, and the gig economy. Her planned program will likely be a combination of studies that focus on either 1) highlighting egregious issues that still run rampant in organizations, such as racism, discrimination, gender biases (e.g., women not making it to the top of organizations), etc. and then 2) arguing that the only way to solve those issues are for individuals, particularly leaders with influence, to make changes on the inside (from the heart) - addressing mental health, taking stock of emotions, etc. Outside of academia, she is passionate about her faith, family, friends and outdoor adventure.
