Speaker Bio:
Tyler G. Okimoto is an Associate Professor in Management at UQ Business School where he teaches leadership, negotiation, and decision-making in the top-ranked MBA and Executive Education programs.  He received his Ph.D. from New York University in 2005, and worked as a researcher at Yale School of Management prior to joining UQ.  His research tackles issues of social conflict in organisations, politics, and society more broadly, particularly how biases in organisational and ethical decision-making contribute to discrimination, unethical practices, injustice, and conflict within and between groups.  However, his work focuses on understanding both sides of the problem: (a) the diverse viewpoints that often incite conflict, and (b) how to repair harm and rebuild consensus. In 2012, he received the Distinguished Early Career Contribution Award from the International Society for Justice Research for his innovative work in developing a better understanding of reconciliation and reintegration in the aftermath of workplace conflicts, as well as following major socio-political disputes.
