Dr. Gonzalez-Morales’ invited talk for the Canadian Positive Psychology Association CPPA

February 18, 2021 4.00 pm PT / 7.00 pm EST

Feminist Positive Organizational Psychology: Respectful Engagement for Building Positive Relational Cultures (Register here)

In this talk, I use a feminist epistemological lens to the study of respectful engagement in lieu of ‘civility’ in the workplace, as the counterpoint of workplace incivility and other organizational deviant behaviors. I build a theoretical framework based upon the positive organizational scholarship (POS) concepts of positive social capital (Bakker & Dutton, 2006), high-quality connections (Dutton & Heaphy, 2003) and the feminist theory of relational work and practice (Fletcher, 1998).
