Ryann Manning is an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour at Rotman. She received a PhD in Organizational Behavior and Sociology from Harvard University. Her research uses in-depth fieldwork to examine culture, emotion, and morality in organizational life, and to understand how organizations with a social mission, and people organizing to meet societal needs, grapple with challenges posed by acute and ongoing crises. Her recent research projects have examined online and offline organizing by volunteers responding to the 2014-2015 Ebola crisis in West Africa, the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, and the crisis in Afghanistan starting in 2021. As an experienced manager, global health practitioner, and social entrepreneur, she is particularly interested in healthcare organizations, public sector organizations, and organizations in the developing world.
