It is with great pleasure that The Centre for Research on Inclusion at Work (CRIW) announces the appointment of its new Associate Director, Dr. Daniel Gulanowski. Dr. Gulanowski joins CRIW’s current Director, Dr. Angela Dionisi, in seeking to grow the Centre’s impact.

“I am happy to welcome Daniel to our team.” Dr. Dionisi said. “I am confident that he will make a significant impact and use his passion and expertise to advance CRIW’s mission. I look forward to working together to achieve new heights of excellence for the Centre.”

Dr. Gulanowski brings a wealth of energy and insight to this role and has a proven track record in research and knowledge mobilization. His work has been published in leading journals in his field, has been showcased at more than 30 conferences, and has been funded by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) grants. His dedication to advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion through studying immigrants’ adjustment and labour market integration – in reference to expatriates, refugees, or international students – makes him a promising fit for the team.

Dr. Gulanowski expressed what CRIW has meant to him over the years and what he looks forward to as part of the Centre’s governance team. “My interest in immigrants’ workforce integration drove my interest in CRIW,” he said. “As an active member of the Centre since 2019, I’ve significantly expanded my research network and collaboration opportunities within the Sprott School of Business community. I have also benefited from research funding programs available through CRIW and have seen my supported research go on to be published. As the Associate Director, I am eager to contribute to our center’s continued success, growth, and development of research collaborations.”

Dr. Gulanowski’s arrival also marks the departure of inclusion champion, Dr. Luciara Nardon from CRIW’s leadership team, after serving for the last five years.

“CRIW would like to extend its heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Luciara Nardon for her significant contributions to the Centre over the years.” Dr. Dionisi said. “She has played a central role in propelling the Centre forward, re-envisioning its scope, and expanding its mandate to focus on inclusion at work more broadly. This shift has undoubtedly grown the impact of the Centre. We are sad to see her move on, but are grateful for her service and dedication to CRIW and its mission.”

Please join CRIW in welcoming Dr. Gulanowski to CRIW’s governance team, and wishing Dr. Nardon all the best in her future endeavours.
