Dr. Linda Duxbury

Professor, Sprott School of Business, Carleton University

Dr. Duxbury teaches management and strategy and change management at Sprott School of Business, Carleton University.  She has published widely in both the academic and practitioner literatures around work-family conflict, change management, supportive work environments, employee wellbeing, the use and impact of office technology and managing the new workforce.

For the past two years Dr. Duxbury has been studying the impact of COVID-19 on employee wellbeing. She and her team have done weekly or biweekly interviews with 70 employed parents at nineteen different points in time which have allowed her team to track the impact of COVID-19 and the various government interventions on employee wellbeing over time.  In partnership with the Conference Board of Canada, she and her team have administered a survey (Employee Wellbeing in Times of COVID-19) in which over 33,000 Canadian employees from across Canada have participated.

Dr. Duxbury is the recipient of Carleton University Faculty Graduate Mentoring Award (2013 and 2022) and has been appointed as one of eight Carleton University’s Chancellor’s Professors.
