Sara Louise Muhr

Sara Louise Muhr’s research focuses on critical perspectives on managerial identity and HRM, especially in relation to issues around coping with diversity and expectations in modern, flexible ways of working. Following this broader aim, she has worked with various empirical settings such as management consultancy, prisons, the military and police force, pole dance studios and executive networks where she has engaged with issues such as power, culture, emotional labor, gender, ethnicity, leadership and work-life balance.

Since January 2018 Muhr has also held the position as Academic Director of the CBS Business in Society Platform ‘Diversity and Difference’. As Academic director of the Diversity and Difference platform, she works to consolidate, advance and disseminate research on diversity and difference in order to have an impact on society through strong partnerships with policy makers, business leaders, NGOs, and public organizations. The platform brings together researchers from a broad range of disciplines, nationally and internationally, including organization studies, linguistic anthropology, cross-cultural management, philosophy, religion, sociology and economics to engage with themes such as migration and integration, cultural and linguistic diversity in the workplace, women in management, sexuality and queer studies, inclusive leadership and diversity management.
