Dr. Laura Dobusch

Since 2024 Laura Dobusch researches and teaches at the Institute for Change Management and Management Development.

Main areas of her research are:

  • how organizations can become both more inclusive/open and sustainable and how respective policy approaches interact with each other;

  • which opportunities, limits and also unintended consequences are linked to these change processes;

  • and what transformation potential can be found in cross-organizational and cross-sector collaborations (e.g., open social innovation initiatives) in order to address major societal challenges (e.g., climate crisis).

Laura received her Bachelor degree in Sociology and her Master degrees in Gender Studies and International Development Studies at the University of Vienna (AT). She was awarded a doctoral scholarship from the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy and received her PhD at the Technical University of Munich (DE) where she also did her postdoc. After research stays at the Department of Organization at Copenhagen Business School (DK) and the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies at Harvard University (US), she worked as Assistant Professor at the Radboud Social Cultural Research Institute at Radboud University (NL).

Currently she has the pleasure to be part of the Editorial Board of the journal Organization as well as the editorial team of the Zeitschrift für Diversitätsforschung und -management.
