Dr Mollie Bryde-Evens finished her VC-Scholarship funded PhD in October 2023 and is now a Lecturer in Ethical Business and Responsible Management at Liverpool John Moores University and Co-Lead of the British Academy of Management Early Career Academic Network.

Prior to this, Mollie achieved her Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and her Master’s degree in Ethics and Social Philosophy, both from Cardiff University, which instilled in her a passion for ethics and social issues.

In between degrees, Mollie worked in various industries and is interested in the ways more traditional approaches to philosophy and ethics can be useful in organisational settings.

Mollie’s PhD applied a virtue ethical, stakeholder theory lens and examined the interactions between sustainable development, disaster recovery, and ethics in organisations. Her broad areas of interest are triple bottom line sustainability and business ethics, with a focus on normativity.

Mollie was awarded the Emerging Scholars Award by the Society of Business Ethics in 2022. Mollie is also interested in and passionate about EDIR (equity, diversity, inclusivity and respect) related issues, and was a co-founder of the first EDIR society at Liverpool John Moores: the RIDE (Respect, Inclusivity, Diversity and Equity) Society. She also co-led an inclusion and diversity project titled 'I Belong!'.

Her current research projects focus on the ethical implications of the slow fashion movement; the role of normativity in business ethical and sustainability research, and the relationship between short-termism and social sustainability during periods of disaster recovery.
