Dr Dawn Nicholson, Lecturer in Business and Organisational Psychology at the University of Kent
Dr Dawn H. Nicholson worked for almost 28 years in internal Human Resources (HR) roles and as an advisor to HR, in professional and financial services in the City of London. Most recently, she spent 3 years as a Partner in PwC’s HR Consulting business, working with clients on their people-related issues and leading PwC’s client diversity offering.
Prior to PwC, Dawn was Managing Director, Deputy Head of Human Resources for Europe, The Middle East and Africa, for the global investment bank, Morgan Stanley, where she worked for 16 years. Dawn was responsible for areas including reward, benefits, diversity, employee engagement, learning and development and recruiting.

Before joining Morgan Stanley, Dawn spent 9 years at Arthur Andersen advising clients on people related tax and HR issues.
Dawn retired from PwC in June 2013 and returned to academia to pursue her primary passion – understanding and improving group decision-making processes. She was awarded her PhD in group decision-making in the School of Psychology here at Kent in 2019.
