Culture at Work Lab Home


Welcome to the Culture and the Workplace Lab website! The Culture and the Workplace lab is located at the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada and is led by Dr. Wendi Adair.

Our lab investigates issues arising in multicultural workplaces and international ventures where people raised with different worldviews and communication norms face interdependent challenges including negotiation, conflict management, teamwork, and decision making. We conduct both lab and field studies, employing both experimental and quasi-experimental designs. We publish our research in both academic and practitioner journals, and disseminate our findings in organizational and virtual settings. Please have a look through our website to learn more about our main research areas, Indigenous Workways, Conflict Dynamics in Diverse Workplaces, Global Work Teams, Intercultural Communication as well as other opportunities associated with the Culture at Work lab.
