Diane-Laure Arjaliès

Assistant Professor, Ivey Business School, Western University

I have been an Assistant Professor at the Ivey Business School since 2015. I belong to the ‘Managerial Accounting and Control’, ‘Sustainability’ and ‘General Management’ groups – a cross-disciplinary appointment that reflects my research and teaching. I aim to push the boundaries of knowledge and practice by investigating how the fashioning of new devices and/or collective actions can help transform markets towards sustainability. Over the past years, I have studied the emergence of responsible investing, conservation finance, impact assessment, integrated reporting, and alternative currencies.

My work in this area has won me several academic, teaching and professional prizes. The French Ministry for Finance and Economy has recently appointed me to the Scientific Committee of the French SRI label. I am also a board member of the French Social Investment Forum, an advisory member of the Principles for Responsible Investing and a Jury member of the FIR-PRI Finance and Sustainability Awards. Since 2017, I have also been an honorary research fellow at Cambridge, Centre for Alternative Finance.
