This first blog entry introduces Dr Claudia E Henninger, who has recently completed her PhD at the University of Sheffield and is currently a lecturer at the University of Manchester. Her research focuses on corporate identity or what organisations stand for. Claudia’s context of her study is in the fashion industry and micro-organisations, those that employer fewer than 10 employees.
As part of a university wide project at the University of Sheffield, Claudia was asked what sustainability means to her. The results can be viewed in this video or downloaded via iTunesU.
