My research explores how different aspects of the contemporary workplace affect equality, or the degree to which employees have equal career opportunities. I examine this question through two streams of research. My primary research stream focuses on the impact of increased virtuality at work on career equality. In my second line of inquiry, I explore the equality gaps that persist amongst (i) star performers and (ii) leaders and aim to understand the forces that work against certain groups becoming stars and leaders. To address these questions, I apply various methodological strategies. This interest in different methodological approaches and methodological rigor has translated into several methods-based projects.
Taken together, my research helps explain not only the complex factors that impact equality in today’s workplace but also the nature of certain inequities that we may be building into the workplace of tomorrow.
