    Joanne Leck joined the Telfer School of Management, University of Ottawa, Ontario Canada, in 2000 as a professor of human resource management and organisational behaviour. Dr. Leck obtained a B.Math from the University of Waterloo in 1980, an MBA in 1987 and PhD in 1992 from McGill University. Her thesis examined the effectiveness of employment equity programs and issues related to managing diversity. Dr. Leck's earliest work was an extension of her dissertation, where she continued to research employment and pay equity. After interviewing women who broke the glass-ceiling, she became increasingly aware of another problem women face in the workplace, namely bullying and harassment. As these working conditions may dissuade women from advancing in their careers, she turned her attention to this area of research. Most recently, she has been investigating how mentoring can not only protect women from any adverse forces but also provide them with the psychosocial and career support they need to advance.
