Jennifer Dimoff

Assistant Professor, Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management, L’Université d’Ottawa/University of Ottawa

Dr. Dimoff is an Assistant Professor in Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management at the Telfer School of Management at the University of Ottawa. Prior to joining the faculty at Telfer, Dr. Dimoff spent three years at Portland State University, where she maintains status as an Affiliate Assistant Professor. She is also an Affiliate Faculty member at Oregon Health & Science University. Her primary area of research focuses on the intersections between leadership, occupational health and safety, and employee training and development. As the youngest recipient of the Society of Industrial/Organizational Psychology (SIOP) Scientist-Practitioner Presidential Recognition Award, her research reflects her firm endorsement of the scientist-practitioner model. She has worked with local, national, and international organizations to develop, deliver, and evaluate evidence-based solutions to real workplace problems. Most notably, Dr. Dimoff co-developed the Mental Health Awareness Training (MHAT)—one of the first scientifically evaluated mental health training programs for workplace leaders to demonstrate ROI. In addition to numerous journal publications and chapters, she has also co-edited a book, Leading to Occupational Health and Safety: How Leadership Behaviours Impact Organizational Safety and Well-Being.
