Kim de Laat
Kim de Laat is a research collaborator with the Brookfield Institute for Innovation + Entrepreneurship. Alongside her BII+E colleagues, she is working on a qualitative study that examines the challenges faced by women-founded high growth enterprises as they attempt to scale their businesses. In addition to her work with BII+E, she is a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE). Her postdoctoral work examines the unintended consequences of formal and informal social policies aimed at reducing workplace inequalities: she has one project on the use of flexible work arrangements by men and women in a financial services firm, and another project that looks at how individuals in creative SMEs engage with diversity and inclusion. Kim received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Toronto, where her doctoral and postdoctoral work has been supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
