Shelley T. Price


Shelley T. Price, PhD (Candidate) is an Assistant Professor at St. Francis Xavier University in the Department of Management. Shelley’s passion for education, knowledge acquisition and respect for cultural, traditional and spiritual connection to the land is central in her research. As an Inuk woman from Labrador, she was raised to respect the teachings that her Elders shared with her through stories and through being on the land. Her research focus is in Indigenous storytelling leadership toward sustainable development, community wellbeing and responsible management. Shelley’s work in gender and diversity brings her to focus on Indigenous women who are leading grassroots initiatives by sharing their stories and voices toward respect, resilience and compassion. She believes in incorporating Indigenous knowledges and Indigenous women’s voices into the business process so as to respect an interconnected approach to leading change in economic, social, cultural, environmental and spiritual wellbeings of the local and global community. Shelley is a research member of PhiLab’s Atlantic hub and Indigenous Research Cluster.

When I am not working, I love spending time with my family, music, the wind and the rain.
