Phani Radhakrishnan receives 2024 Global Educator Award

Phani Radhakrishnan, an associate professor, teaching stream, of organizational behaviour and human resources in the University of Toronto Scarborough’s department of management, has received U of T’s Global Educator Award for 2024.

The annual award is given to faculty members who embody the university’s global mission and the ability to operate and communicate across cultural contexts.

Radhakrishnan was named the 2024 recipient in recognition of her partnership-driven, work-integrated learning approach spanning global classrooms.

“Professor Phani Radhakrishnan displays an ongoing practice of weaving interactional diversity and inclusivity in her pedagogy for over 20 years at the University of Toronto,” said Alexie Tcheuyap, U of T’s associate vice-president and vice-provost, international student experience. “Phani has created global learning opportunities for students that are supported through localized and lived experiences. She has made a tremendous impact on future scholars in management and continues to make an impact on the global academic community.”  

Professor Jean-Etienne de Bettignies, acting chair of the department of management, said Radhakrishnan “not only motivates students to pursue global and intercultural fluency but also equips them with essential HR and leadership skills to serve as valuable contributors within organizations and their communities.”

Radhakrishnan will be honoured at the annual Excellence in Teaching Reception in the fall.
