ABOUT


Alicia Ingersoll joined the faculty as an assistant professor of Supply Chain Management at Weber State’s Goddard School of Business and Economics in 2020. Alicia holds a Ph.D. in Organizational and Economic Sociology from Utah State University. She also has an M.B.A. from the Gore School of Business at Westminster College and a B.S. degree from the University of Utah. 

Prior to returning to graduate school at Utah State, Alicia spent over 15 years working within the supply chain field in the areas of event logistics, distribution, purchasing and global logistics. Most recently Alicia worked as a consultant for a variety of major outdoor industry brands, assisting them with supply chain strategy, global logistics and distribution planning and enterprise resource project management. 

Alicia’s research examines the connections between corporations and society with specific focus on the link between organizational performance and corporate practices, such as leader attributes and sustainability initiatives. In one stream of research Alicia studies gender variance within organizations and the attributes and conduits of women leaders. In a separate stream of research, Alicia analyzes operations and supply chain practices both within and across organizations in terms of how they drive decisions and impact stakeholders.

HOBBIES


I love enjoying the outdoors as much as possible. During the summer, I like to be on the lake. I’m an avid water skier and have recently learned to wake surf. I also enjoy hiking, camping, climbing, paddling and all the amazing recreation Utah offers. During the winter, I occasionally hit the slopes, but more often opt for a warm chair with a good book, movie or video game. I’m also just starting to learn to play guitar because I always have to be learning something new. I think it’s important to continuously challenge ourselves to do new and/or hard things.
