Biography

Dr Lee Martin is a senior lecturer in the Department of Management at Deakin University, and has previously held visiting fellowships at Simon Fraser University, Canada and Singapore Management University, Singapore.

Lee’s expertise is on cultural diversity in the workplace, particularly how multicultural employees, leaders and teams can contribute to organisations. She aims to help individuals and organisations understand how to harness cultural diversity to succeed in today’s globalised environment. Lee has provided advice to government (Victorian and Commonwealth) and international bodies (United Nations) in this area.

Her research is published in leading international peer-reviewed journals and has been shortlisted for multiple awards from the Academy of Management, including the Douglas Nigh Award and Best Student Paper. She currently serves on the editorial review boards of the Journal of Vocational Behavior and Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: An International Journal.

Lee’s teaching experience includes Leadership Practice with Impact (postgraduate), Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Development (undergraduate), among other courses. She is the lead developer and lead educator in the highly successful massive open online course (MOOC), Leading Culturally Diverse Teams in the Workplace, which has featured in Commonwealth and Victorian government promotional campaigns. 

Prior to academia, Lee worked in the Australian government for a number of years, including as an adviser in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in Canberra and at the Australian Embassy in Beijing, in addition to co-founding a language training company in China.

Lee holds a PhD in Management from UNSW Sydney, a Master of Asia-Pacific Studies with Distinction from Australian National University, and Bachelors of Commerce (Economics, 1st Class Honours) and Science (Chemistry, with Merit) from UNSW Sydney. She was awarded as a "40 Under 40 Most Influential Asian-Australian" by the Asian-Australian Leadership Summit in 2021.
