About Me


Dr Angela Martinez Dy is a lecturer and researcher at the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at Loughborough University London. She holds a BA (Hons) from the University of Washington in her hometown of Seattle, USA where she double majored in Mathematics and Creative Writing, and MA (Dist) and PhD in Entrepreneurship from Nottingham University Business School. She is a trained anti-racist and intersectional feminist organiser with substantial experience of building new community-based organisations, including Youth Speaks Seattle, the city’s premier youth arts education provider which she co-founded at age 17. Her research interests include digital entrepreneurship, intersectional feminism, and critical realist philosophy. She takes this perspective to understand social dynamics, and the ways that technology impacts society, especially the world of work and entrepreneurship.

Angela is a founding member of Building the Anti-Racist Classroom (BARC), an international collective of women business and management educators of colour working to develop anti-racist pedagogy and practice in HE. She is also a founding member of the Decolonizing Alliance, a committee member of the Gender and Enterprise Network of the Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. She tweets professionally from @iielborolondon, @ISBEGEN, and @CollectiveBARC. This blog represents her personal views and activities, not those of the university.
