Leanne's research interests examine the junctions between accounting, philosophy and discourse.
Her research projects focus on the role of accounting in society, particularly the interactions between environmental philosophy and corporate environmental reporting. She is also working on projects which examine corporate diversity through the lens of feminist philosophy; how cultural values impact on the way corporations report; and environmental philosophies. She brings this research knowledge to the classroom as Course Coordinator and Lecturer in Accounting for Sustainable Management. Prior to joining RMIT, Leanne lectured a range of Accounting topics at the University of Tasmania, where she completed her PhD. Her industry experience includes her role as a tax consultant, and various board positions in the environmental not-for- profit sector.
