Jenny Helin has a post doc at the Center for Family Enterprise and Ownership at Jönköping International Business School, Sweden. Her research interests lie at the intersection of process philosophy and dialogue, exploring generative meeting practices in organizational contexts. She also explores how process orientations can influence how people make connections and relate to each other in the (organizational) every day. Jenny is particularly interested in family owned businesses which she focused on in her dissertation entitled: ‘Living moments in family meetings: a process perspective in the family business context´. Based on the dissertation, Jenny was awarded the Wallander scholarship, a post-doctoral scholarship for distinguished young researchers in the field of business administration and economics, which now allows her to continue her research on meetings practices in organizations.
Being connected to Center for Family Enterprise and Ownership (www.cefeo.se), an internationally renowned interdisciplinary research and learning center focusing on family business and ownership issues, Jenny has extensive experience of working with family firms as an academic and facilitator. Her research projects depart from a relational stance where she works collaborative with organizational members.
Before turning to academia, Jenny has mainly worked in different entrepreneurial settings. She has had several positions in high-growth young firms, including the start of her own business. Jenny lives with her family on Gotland, a beautiful island located east of mainland Sweden.
