Jill McKinnon Research Seminar Series
The Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance conducts a regular research seminar series.
The objectives of the seminar series are:
- to provide a forum in which academic staff and research students in the Department provide considered and constructive feedback to presenters in a collegial environment
- to expose our staff and research students to current research being conducted by colleagues both internal and external to our Department. The seminar series includes research in all areas of accounting and corporate governance.
The series is named the Jill McKinnon Research Seminar Series in memory of Associate Professor Jill McKinnon and in recognition of her outstanding contribution to research, teaching and academic leadership in the Department over many years.
