Dr Grace Augustine is a Lecturer in the Department of Management at Cass Business School, City, University of London. Prior to joining Cass, Dr Augustine completed a PhD in Management & Organizations and Sociology (joint degree program) at Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management and an MSc in Management Research at the University of Oxford Saïd Business School.
Dr Augustine primarily studies new fields that come about from social movement pressure, and in particular she looks at the consequences of these changes on organizations – ranging from the way that they can create entrepreneurial opportunities and legitimize new technologies to the role they play in the creation of entirely new occupations whose positions are created out of movement demands. In particular, she examines these questions within the movement towards environmental sustainability, looking at organizational responses to the climate crisis, but she has also researched contexts such as abortion provision and decline in the U.S.
At Cass, Dr Augustine teaches the Corporate Social Responsibility class to undergraduate students, and also works as part of a team to deliver the core Critical Thinking and Introduction to Management courses.
