Oriane Georgeac is an Assistant Professor of Management & Organizations at Boston University's Questrom School of Business. Her research interests focus on how people respond to organizational messages about diversity. In one program of research, she investigates the effects of organizations’ justifications for why they value diversity on underrepresented group members and team managers. In another stream of her research, she examines how people respond to information reflecting organizations’ achievements in increasing women’s representation in top leadership. Her research across these two streams offers novel insights into how organizations’ efforts to support diversity may paradoxically prevent them from advancing toward their diversity goals.
Dr. Georgeac got her PhD from London Business School. She worked at Yale University's School of Management from 2020-2023. Her work has won multiple awards, and has been covered by a variety of media outlets, including Harvard Business Review, Forbes, The Economist, The Telegraph, and The Hill.

Ten Years of Brainprint
Mirrors or Movers is the world's premier conference dedicated to investigating, debating and challenging the impacts of media content on society and the environment. This year marks the tenth edition.
This year’s conference reflected on a decade of media’s role in society and looked ahead to the future. There’s plenty to say: it’s been a period of great change in which we’ve seen increasing urgency on both societal and environmental concerns, driving changes across subsectors, channels and formats. Whatever your view on media’s role in sustainability, it’s clear that content makers and publishers now need fluency on a range of environmental and social issues, which pushes media companies into new territories.
Attended by opinion formers, academics, NGOs and media professionals – including both sustainability professionals and content makers; media was represented in all its diversity – broadcast, publishing, entertainment, advertising, expos, events, and more.
