Dr Laura Steele is a Senior Lecturer in Business and Society and Director of Ethics, Responsibility, and Sustainability at Queen’s Mangement School, Belfast. Laura’s teaching and research interests lie at the intersection between ethics, responsibility, sustainability, and technology, particularly in regard to applications of AI. Having previously published on AI, leadership, and HRM, Laura is currently working on an edited text titled ‘AI and Work: Transforming Organisations and Society in an Age of Insecurity’ with Professor John Bratton due to be published by Sage in 2024. In 2019, Laura developed a new postgraduate module on Artificial Intelligence in Business and Society as part of Queen’s Management School’s MSc in Business Analytics programme.
Outside of Queen’s University, Laura is actively involved in the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), where she serves on both the UK and Ireland Chapter Steering Committee and the international PRME Champions Group. Prior to becoming an academic, Laura worked extensively across the private, public, and third/voluntary sectors, for organisations including the Northern Ireland Assembly, the Special EU Programmes Body, and Politics Plus. As a result, she has a particular interest in public policy related to the regulation and governance of AI and personal data in the UK and beyond.
