Academic Profile

Isabella Krysa is an Assistant Professor of Management and joined the FDU Vancouver campus in August 2016. Her research interests are in organizational history, organizational diversity, and the work-life balance of new parents. In her research on diversity in the workplace, Prof. Krysa focuses on identifying systemic barriers of minority populations in the workplace and finding solutions to create inclusive organizations.

Living in a diverse society is both a passion for research and in life for Prof. Krysa. Born in Poland and raised in Germany, living in different cultures and meeting people from different places has made Prof. Krysa particularly interested in traveling and exploring other cultures and ways of living. Conducting her Ph.D. on the issue of diversity in a multicultural place like Canada has allowed Prof. Krysa to create a career where she can pursue her passions.

Prof. Krysa has taught students in Canada, Vietnam, and China. She is particularly passionate about teaching courses that help students become global citizens. She aspires to help students realize how wonderful it is that we now have access to connect with people all over the world.
