By Maroon & White | fall 2019

Dr. Samantha A. Penney, a recent PhD graduate in Industrial/Organizational Psychology, has received the prestigious 2019 Kenneth E. Clark Student Research Award from the Center for Creative Leadership and the International Leadership Association. “It is an absolute honour to have my dissertation research recognized internationally,” said Dr. Penney. In her award-winning paper on leadership titled “Fostering a Psychologically Healthy Workplace through Leadership”, Dr. Penney created and validated a scale to assess leadership behaviours that contribute to a healthy workplace, and then designed a workshop and phone-based coaching program which she delivered to leaders in eight organizations across seven provinces.
