About Dr Emily Yarrow

I am a Senior Lecturer in Management and Organisations at Newcastle University Business School, UK, and am a highly motivated and passionate academic with valuable blue-chip industry experience.

My teaching, research and consulting philosophy are underpinned by an innovative blend of the notion of triple helix thinking, knowledge creation for social justice, and a passion for gender equality. Additionally, I also provide a consultancy service. 

To date, my work has focused on the impact of research evaluation on female academic careers (exploring the UK Research Excellence Framework), pensions and the experiences of older workers, and human resource management (HRM) practices more broadly. My work contributes to contemporary understandings of gendered organisational behaviour and women’s lived experiences of organisational life. My work has been published in top-tier journals, including Gender, Work and Organization (ABS 3*); Work, Employment and Society (ABS 4*); and The British Educational Research Journal (ABS 3*).

Researching human resource management with a focus on equality and diversity, organisational behaviour/theory, and cross-cultural management is incredibly rewarding. I am interested the current shift towards triple helix thinking-the sharing of, and co-creation of knowledge between Universities, Government and Industry for mutually beneficial innovation, as well as the on-going research impact agenda, albeit I adopt a critical lens. Ultimately, I am passionate about how triadic relationships can potentially contribute to social justice (for example through gender equality policy changes or awareness-raising of equality and diversity issues) to drive social good.

With more than seven years of valuable teaching experience at various Universities including: The University of Edinburgh Business School; Queen Mary University of London; and Portsmouth Business School, I aim to inspire my students through my innovative and theoretically underpinned approach to teaching, which is driven by student engagement and a passion for fostering independent student learning.  I strive to have an egalitarian, inclusive and stimulating tutorial and lecture environment. My courses focus on the functions, skills and actions associated with contemporary human resources management practice and are primarily concerned with the development of skills that are pivotal to successful management practice, effective leadership and conducting contemporary HRM research. I am a qualitative research expert, having led courses in research methods at all levels including MBA and Global MBA, as well as offering bespoke qualitative research consulting.
