  • 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.
