Remix or Reinvent? How Deviance Can Drive Careers in the Creative Community of EDM, with Amandine Ody-Brasier

Season 4, Ep. 6

When does deviance from the norm propel a career or stop it in its tracks? The enforcement of certain norms and legalities around intellectual property isn’t always up to the law—it’s up to the community. Desautels professor Amandine Ody-Brassier discovered that within the electronic dance music (EDM) community, norms around unlawful activities such as illegal remixes are loose and often garner support, even career-launching acclaim. Her research asks how norms—appropriate, though not necessarily legal, behaviors shared by community members—affect careers and other economic outcomes in creative occupations.

How Organizations Can Increase Gender Diversity by Rethinking Job Recruitment, with Brian Rubineau

Season 4, Ep. 8
In the past few years of the Covid pandemic, many people have left or lost their jobs and sought out new ones. Who has succeeded and who hasn’t depends not only on merit and ability, but on who you know—word-of-mouth is one of the most common ways that people learn about and are encouraged to apply for jobs. And who you know typically reflects your gender, race, and other influential differences that in policy terms are markers of diversity. Examining the role gender plays in job recruitment and hiring can lead to a more diverse workforce that benefits both organizations and society.On the Delve podcast, Desautels Faculty of Management Professor Brian Rubineau discusses new research that shows how gender is a factor in word-of-mouth recruiting, as well as in who actually applies for the job in the first place and who reapplies after they’ve been rejected. Some of his findings surprised him.For research-based insights on diversity, equity, and inclusion in job recruitment, listen to the Delve podcast interview and read the article with professor Rubineau on Delve.Delve is the official thought leadership platform of McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management.

Scale Deep Not Up for Sustainable Local Entrepreneurship, with Anna Kim and Suntae Kim

Season 4, Ep. 7
How would definitions of business growth and success change if entrepreneurship ventures decided that instead of scaling up, they would “scale deep”? On the Delve podcast, Desautels Faculty of Management professor Anna Kim and her co-author Johns Hopkins Carey Business School Professor Suntae Kim discuss their eight-year study of two entrepreneurship-nurturing organizations in Detroit, revealing important differences in resourcing modes and venture growth. What they observed in that city is happening in many other places, whether small towns or big cities, rural or urban, where the issue of revitalization is top of mind. “With the scaling deep approach, the more locally embedded approach, because you keep working with local partners, utilizing local resources, and making connections in those local contexts, your services and products become very, very meaningful locally,” explains Anna Kim. “But it doesn't actually mean a lot outside of Detroit or outside of a certain neighborhood. So it actually anchors them even more deeply in the local context.”Read more on Delve.Delve is the official thought leadership platform of McGill University's Desautels Faculty of Management.

How Barriers to Foreign Investments Affect Risk-Taking in International Markets, with Francesca Carrieri

Season 4, Ep. 5
What regulations are at play when financial institutions, hedge funds, mutual fund managers, and others invest in stocks and businesses in another country—and who do those regulations ultimately benefit? Despite protecting both foreign investors and countries’ domestic markets, regulatory constraints still present certain barriers to foreign investment, especially in times of market stress, inflation, and increased interest rates. Desautels Professor Francesca Carrieri examines the dynamics of global market integration before and after the 2008 financial crisis, asking what level of risk will foreign investors take today in the name of diversification of their portfolios? "What we can do is strengthen the financial system overall, but also make sure that, under certain conditions, institutional investors have the liquidity necessary to strengthen their underlying positions,” says Carrieri.Read more on Delve and read the transcript.
