Biography

Sally Wightman is a postgraduate researcher. Her PhD, which she began in 2019, investigates the role of tradition, as understood through the lens of Alasdair MacIntyre's Thomistic Aristotelian ethics, in the experience and conceptualisation of meaningful work.

Sally has taught at levels 4 and 5 in the areas of HRM and responsible business and is also a member of the Management, Spirituality and Religion community at the Academy of Management. Prior to starting her PhD, Sally completed her undergraduate degree also at Newcastle Business School where she first took interest to the topic of meaningful work. She has practical work experience working in the charity sector.
